[October 26, 2012]  Lincoln College's Iota Chi Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society is hosting its semiannual Trivia Night contest and fundraiser on Nov. 2 at 6:30 p.m. in the Meyer-Evans Student Center.

The event is open to the public.

The cost to participate is $10 per person, with a maximum of eight people per team. A $100 cash prize will be awarded to the winning team. In addition to the trivia contest, the event will feature a silent auction containing items such as a Lincoln College sports basket. There will also be a 50-50 cash drawing.

Anyone interested in registering their team should contact Assistant Professor Spring Hyde at or 217-871-9639.

John Malone, WLNX-FM station manager and assistant professor of broadcasting, will serve as master of ceremonies.

The Iota Chi Chapter will provide free popcorn. The college snack bar will be open at 6 p.m. with items available for sale, including burgers, fries, cheese sticks, beverages and other tasty treats.

Phi Theta Kappa is the premier national honor society for junior colleges. Proceeds from this event will support the initiatives of the Lincoln College chapter, including the purchase of recycling bins for Creekside Environmental Center, the Special Olympics and Books for Veterans.

Hannah Singleton, chapter president, is a sophomore from South Pekin. She commented about the importance of the fundraiser: "Iota Chi members have always been very generous with volunteering their time to serve others. However; we have many projects that require funding in addition to offering our time. We hope this Trivia Night will help raise the funds needed to continue forward with our planned contributions to Creekside, the Special Olympics and Books for Veterans."
