C.A.R.E. volunteers and friends sampled a delicious new fundraiser at February’s Beer Tasting & Trivia, held at Ten Ninety Brewing Co. in Glenview.
C.A.R.E. held its first annual Beer Tasting & Trivia Fundraiser on February 25, 2018, at Ten Ninety Brewing Co. in Glenview, Ill. C.A.R.E. volunteers and event planners Ellen McConnell, Diane Moe and Karey Uhler thought it would be fun to try a new type of event--and fun is exactly what it proved to be.
The event’s 75 spots sold out quickly. Ten Ninety Taproom Manager Jimmy and colleague Will from Ten Ninety served as our friendly and informative bartenders for the afternoon. Pub Trivia USA, led by Melissa, supplied diverse and mind-bending trivia questions.
“The Ten Ninety dining room, with comfortable chairs and fireplace, soon felt like a ‘home away from home.’ People relaxed and enjoyed themselves immensely,” Diane says.
Winning trivia team “Monkey Knife Fight” received six-packs of their choice of Ten Ninety brew plus club tickets to a White Sox game donated by Maximum Independent Brokerage. The second place team earned a “First Loser” trophy plus gift cards donated from Heinen’s Fine Foods, Hackney’s, Goode and Fresh Pizza Bakery, Pizano’s Glenview, Bonefish Grill and Jasper’s Café.
By the end of the afternoon, some $3,700 (after expenses) had been raised for C.A.R.E.
