Hope Creek Care Center, the Rock Island County owned and operated 245 bed skilled nursing facility is planning a fabulous trivia night fundraiser coming up on Saturday November 17th, 2012! The facility's management staff in conjunction with AFSCME Local 2371 have joined forces to plan this very special event as a way to raise monies for much needed hi-low beds for the residents. Each bed costs approximately $2000, so the goal has been set high to purchase several beds to help the residents live more comfortably and safely.

The Trivia Night Fundraiser will be held at the UAW Local 865 Richard Shoemaker Hall located at 630-19th Street in East Moline. Doors will open at 6:00pm. with trivia beginning at 7:00pm. Reservations for tables of eight players to make a team are being accepted by calling (309) 796-6600. Cost for a team/table of eight is $80.00. Don't have a team, don't worry. Individual players who would like to be placed on a team can also sign up for a cost of $10.00.

The night will also include basket raffles, food, celebrity judges and lots of fun! Monetary donations and sponsorships are also being accepted. Please contact Administrator Trudy Whittington for further details. Hope Creek Care Center is a not-for-profit facility and all donations to this event are tax deductible.
