Landmark stage of the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University.
Ready to test your knowledge of everything from history to pop culture and support a truly heart warming program presented by a prized Chicago cultural treasure? Here’s your chance. The Auditorium Theatre Auxiliary Board is hosting its annual fundraiser Shhh…It’s Trivia Night, Wednesday, May 25 at 5:30 p.m. in the Murray-Green Library at Roosevelt University (430 S. Michigan Ave -10th Floor). Attendees will laugh out loud with special guest emcees, The Q Brothers, while testing their range of knowledge on a variety of topics.
The event supports the Auditorium Theatre’s annual summer arts camp, Hands Together, Heart to Art, for children who have experienced the death of a parent.
“In just three years, the Trivia Night fundraiser has become a can’t-miss event in Chicago, and this year will be better than ever,” said Auditorium Theatre Auxiliary Board Chair Dillon Goodson. “We moved the event to Roosevelt University’s Murray-Green Library, so we could be in another iconic location in the historic Auditorium Building, as well as allow for more players. Moreover, Hands Together, Heart to Art is a program that touches everyone’s heart, so we’re excited to host an event where people will have a good time in a cool space while supporting a great cause.”
Prizes will be awarded to the three highest-scoring teams, and guests can purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win a variety of more brag-worthy prizes.
Support for Shhh…It’s Trivia Night is provided in part by CJ Dillon and Steve Clements.
