Public Relations Campaign Club will host ‘Questions’ Trivia Night

All proceeds will benefit River Valley Child Development Services

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Marshall University’s Public Relations Campaign Club will be hosting its annual “Questions” Trivia Night on Friday, April 5, to benefit River Valley Child Development Services.

The event will be held in the Grand Ball Room of the Big Sandy Superstore Arena located at One Civic Center Plaza in Huntington. The doors will open at 7 p.m. for the silent auction, and the trivia event will begin at 7:40 p.m.

All proceeds from “Questions” will benefit River Valley’s T.I.P.S. (Tuition Investment Program Support) scholarship program. The T.I.P.S. scholarship program helps low-income families afford quality child care.

“The first five years of a child’s life makes or breaks a child’s future,” Suzi Brodof, executive director, said. “Our T.I.P.S. scholarship program aims to make sure all children can have a bright future. Our community and country depend on it.”

T.I.P.S. provides partial financial assistance to families who are currently pursing financial stability through work or higher education.

The silent auction will include prizes such as a family membership to the YMCA, a one-year family membership to the Clay Center, Winterplace Ski Resort gift certificates that includes rentals, lift passes and lessons, Marshall football tickets and many other items.

“Questions” is open to both individuals and groups of up to eight people.

Tickets are $25 and $10 for students.  They may be purchased at the door the night of the event, or by calling 304-673-2707 to get them in advance.

Tickets will include a pasta dinner, one complimentary beer or wine drink, bidding privileges on the auction and a night full of trivia fun. Dress code for “Questions” Trivia Night should be “dressy casual.”
