Honduras Ministry Trivia Night Fundraiser – Nov. 16, 2019

El Pital Clinic

The Honduras Ministry’s 8th Annual Trivia Night fundraiser will be held at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16 at UUCC to benefit our Honduras work. This is a change from our usual January or February date because our fifth service trip to Honduras is scheduled in late December and early January.

Funds raised at the Trivia Night will be used for latrine construction, urgently needed El Pital clinic supplies, scholarship funds for trip participants who otherwise wouldn’t be able to make the trip, other projects that we will be asked to help out with, and to support the microfinance group Adelante.

Tickets are $20 ($15 for students). There will be six people per trivia team. Tickets can be purchased at the door or at church on Sundays starting Oct. 20.

The event will feature child care, good food, a silent auction, 50-50-raffles, a chili cook-off, and, of course, much trivia fun! Bring chili to share by 5:45 p.m. for a chance to win a beautiful Honduran bag!
