AUDITORIUM THEATRE AUXILIARY BOARD HOSTS SIXTH ANNUAL SHHH…TRIVIA NIGHT! FUNDRAISER FOR HEARTS TO ART, A PERFORMING ARTS CAMP FOR YOUNG PEOPLE WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED THE DEATH OF A PARENT
(CHICAGO, IL) The Auditorium Theatre Auxiliary Board, a group of young professionals dedicated to furthering the theatre’s mission, proudly presents the sixth annual Shhh…Trivia Night! fundraiser on Friday, February 1. This evening of (mostly) friendly competition is hosted at Roosevelt University’s historic Murray-Green Library, located inside the Auditorium Building at 430 S Michigan Ave. All proceeds raised benefit Hearts to Art, the Auditorium Theatre’s signature performing arts summer camp for young people who have experienced the death of a parent.
“The Auditorium Theatre Auxiliary Board is honored to host this memorable event that benefits Hearts to Art, a program that is integral to the Auditorium Theatre’s mission,” says Mariaelena Morales, Auditorium Theatre Auxiliary Board Chair. “It’s a fun and affordable night all for a great cause, which is why it sells out every year!”
Tickets for Shhh…Trivia Night! are $45 per person or $240 for a team of six people. Admission includes appetizers and beer, wine, and soda. Prizes are awarded to the three highest-scoring trivia teams – in the past, winners have received tickets to the opening night performance of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater at the Auditorium Theatre, brewery tours at Goose Island, and architecture tours with the Chicago Architecture Foundation. Shhh…Trivia Night! participants can also enter raffles for prizes like cooking classes, musical performances, and sporting events. Past raffle prizes have included tickets to Cubs and Sox games, hotel stays, and tickets to Broadway In Chicago shows.
