We care about the health and wellbeing of everyone involved with this event, especially all of our participants. and do not want to cause more people to become unnecessarily exposed to the virus or infected.

Hopefully, it will become the norm in the future and we will be able to reschedule the event. Until then, we will continue to plan for a Trivia Night featuring challenging questions, exciting guest moderators and a host of prizes and other surprises.

We thank everyone in Sangamon and Menard Counties for their generous support of Crime Stoppers. We are especially grateful to the many organizations and individuals who contribute to making our Trivia Nights successful.
