Last year's competition attracted standing room only crowds as 26 teams competed for the Trivia Bee Fundraiser trophy. The Literacy Connection is looking for raffle donations and 30 teams to participate in this year's competition. Teams are comprised of no more than four members. Registration is $500 per team.

Members from the top three teams receive prizes and trophies, plus the top fundraising team and individual have an opportunity to win an additional prize with this year's Team Challenge.

Team Challenge invites the community to show its support to any participating team or team member by making a monetary donation on their behalf.

The event also features a gift basket and grand prize raffle. Spectators can purchase tickets for $5 on event day. Visit www.elginliteracy.org/events/trivia-bee-2014 for details or call (847) 742-6565.
