McHenry Rotary, Outdoor Theatre team up for trivia and games Aug. 4
The public is invited to enjoy trivia and other games for prizes before the movies begin on opening night of "Meg 2: The Trench" at the McHenry Outdoor Theater Friday, Aug. 4.
"Meg 2" will follow the smash-hit "Barbie," whose run at the Outdoor has been extended for another week.
The McHenry Area Rotary will be on hand from 7-9 p.m. and, in conjunction with Outdoor owner Scott Dehn, will give away prizes including two- and four-packs of Bands, Brews & BBQ tickets, carload season passes good for the rest of the Outdoor's extended-into-December season, Outdoor Theater merch, and even a pair of VIP tickets to the Rotary's BB&B fest Aug. 18-20 at Petersen Park.
The McHenry Outdoor Theater is this year's Bands, Brews & BBQ presenting sponsor, and has supported the fest for years through on-site and on-screen advertising.
"I'm thrilled to be associated with Bands, Brews & BBQ," Dehn said. "Much of Rotary's charitable focus centers on humanitarian needs and youth-oriented programs. As an employer of young people and operator of a business that caters to families … this is a great partnership."
"We're grateful to the Outdoor for the generous, continuing support," said Don Tonyan, president of the McHenry Area Rotary and co-chairman of Bands, Brews & BBQ, along with Denis Buch.
"Scott's contributions have been among the keys to our success."
Rotarians present Aug. 4 will have handouts for anyone curious about the fest, and invite anyone interested in learning more about Rotary to stop by their tent near the concession building and ask questions.
Bands, Brews & BBQ is the McHenry club's chief fundraising event of the year. Proceeds from recent years have provided grants to charities including Kids in Need of McHenry County, the Family Health Partnership Clinic, ShelterBox International, the Wheelchair Foundation, Feed My Starving Children, PolioPlus, the Rotary Youth Leadership Award program, Rotary Secret Santa and more.
