Fun will be had as the St. Joseph Public Library will host an annual fundraiser later this month.

The 11th annual trivia night benefiting the library will be held at the Fairview Golf Course banquet room on June 29th.

Outreach librarian Crystal Stuck says the money raised during the event helps with some of the general programming around the library.

“Sometimes some of our programs we need supplies or there’s some of our teen programs we like to feed them, because the mantra feed them, they will come is often true when it comes to our teen programming,” Stuck tells KFEQ/St. Joseph Post. “And so, it just kind of helps us do a few extra things that normally we wouldn’t have in our budget to do.”

Stuck says while the fundraiser isn’t the biggest for the library, it is the most fun

So, that’s why we keep doing it; our biggest fundraiser would be our friends of the library annual book sale in the fall, which often raises close to $10,000, so that’s our biggest fundraiser, but this one is the most fun, Stuck explains.

Stuck says while proceeds benefit the library, players will get the chance to win some prizes as well

“We don’t spend a lot of money on the event because the whole idea is to raise money, so the prizes aren’t huge but it’s just a little thing for your team so technically you could have a team win multiple rounds and get multiple prizes,” Stuck says. “And then we tally the scores at the end of eight rounds and the team with the highest score gets another prize, so lots of prizes.”

Players can also purchase mulligans during the event and tickets for a 50/50 raffle.

Reservations are not required but are encouraged as tables normally sell out prior to the event Stuck says.
