StLGS 10th Annual Trivia Night Coming Soon

St. Louis Genealogical Society’s tenth annual Trivia Night is now just two weeks away, and we hope you can join us for a few hours of brain teasers and good cheer on Saturday, 2 March 2019 at the Maplewood/Richmond Heights Community Center. StLGS relies on this annual event as one of our major fundraisers. Trivia Night is an event that is fun for all of us! It is an evening filled with friendly competition and a lot of laughs.

One of the highlights of this special evening is our silent auction, a win-win situation for both you and the St. Louis Genealogical Society. Each year, the Trivia Night committee fashions beautiful baskets filled with donations from individual members and generous local businesses. The society benefits from these gifts and you win if you make a lucky bid and get some treasure at a bargain rate.

This year's donations are truly exciting. Here are just a few examples:

St. Louis Cardinals Baskets and Tickets

If you are a sports fan, we've got you covered! Pictured here is one of two baskets containing Cardinals collectables, including Molina garden gnomes, Busch Stadium replicas, bobbleheads, and more.

If baskets aren't enough, there are two sets of Cardinals tickets in prime locations, donated by Kris Fleming and Mary Berthold, with a value of $500 for each set.

In addition to Cardinals gear, we've got an enhanced 3D painting of the Busch Stadium exterior done by Steven Walden and valued at $1200, twelve Sky Suite St. Louis Blues Tickets for the 2019–2020 season and a hockey puck signed by #10, Brayden Schenn.

Welsch's Heating and Cooling

Lifetime StLGS member, Carol Welsch, and her family continue their tradition of donating to StLGS with a $100 gift certificate, the focal point of this lovely basket. Enjoy a delicious glass of wine, some chocolates, and other delights in your warm, cozy house during this chilly, wet winter.

Sweet Treats

Wouldn't this lovely ceramic biscotti container make a nice addition to your kitchen? Filled with delicious Italian cookies to get you started, this is one of two biscotti ceramic baskets that will be available. Why not partner this with one of the spa baskets, or perhaps one filled with wine and whiskey?

There are also hand crafted items by members Mary Lee Chivetta, Kathy Dickey, and Jean Marie Meyer to keep you warm and fashionable. Or you can enjoy a night out to the Rep with two tickets to The Play that Goes Wrong or thanks to the Washington University Department of Music for two tickets to a concert with Katia and Marielle Labeque or two tickets to Gil Shaham and Akira Eguchi.
