Trivia Night and Silent Auction Fundraiser

Saturday, September 15, 2018
5-8 p.m.

1700 Building
1700 E. 56th Street
Chicago, IL 60637

On Sept. 15, 2018, the Chicago Literary Hall of Fame will host a fundraiser in the fabulous penthouse party room of the 1700 Building. All proceeds from the evening will go to fund programming throughout the year, including our end-of-the-year induction ceremony and our next Fuller Award for lifetime achievement. 

The main activities for the evening are Trivia and our Silent Auction, but it is also an evening of food, drink, music, conversation, and a spectacular lake view

Teams of five to seven players will compete for prizes and boasting rights. The cost is $30 per person and includes drink and food. Gather your friends to form your own team, or sign up as an individual and we’ll place you with other singles. 

Due to space limitations, reservations are limited to 10 teams or 70 total players. Please reserve your tickets for a fun evening that will help the CLHOF continue doing its best to serve our literary community. 

There will be a good dose of Chicago and literary themed trivia questions, along with more general knowledge questions in a variety of categories.

Silent auction items will include original artwork, collectible books, theme baskets (such as At the Movies, Play Ball, and Sweet Tooth), tickets for cultural events around town, special experiential packages, and much more. Time will be built into the Trivia contest—before, after, and between rounds—in order for people to bid on items. There will be a half hour at the completion of trivia for guests to make final bids. We accept cash, credit cards and checks. 

Thanks for your participation and see you on Sept. 15! Please email Don Evans if you'd like to make a donation to the silent auction.
