Jaycees Raise Money for Camp New Hope

The Tazewell County Jaycees will be hosting a Trivia Night on Thursday, July 14th starting at 6:30pm at EP’s Timeout (1011 E. Washington St.) in East Peoria to raise funds for Camp New Hope in Neoga, IL. 

Camp New Hope, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded by families of people who have developmental disabilities, and running some of the best recreational programs available for special needs.  Their Summer Camp and Year 'Round Respite programs are well respected.  They always look for ways to have fun, stay active and be connected to the community, like our bowling program, and the Young Athletes program, and many others.  They have been serving people who have developmental disabilities for over thirty years. Their campers have widely diverse needs and abilities. Individuals using wheelchairs are comfortable there and they have camping for people of all ages over 8 years old, including adults.

A two to ten person team will be able to play 8 rounds of 10 questions for $10.00 per person or $5.00 per person for Jaycees.  Registration begins at 6pm with play starting at 6:30pm.  Throughout the evening a 50/50 raffle will be conducted along with door prizes being awarded.  The winning team will be awarded a traveling trophy, free admission and 2 free pizzas from EP’s Timeout at the next trivia night.

If you would like to reserve a table for your team please contact the Tazewell County Jaycees at TazCoJaycees@yahoo.com.  Please note that reservations are preferred, but not required.
