What are you doing on Saturday, Aug. 27? Before you even think of a response, I want you to consider coming to the Muscatine Center for Social Action’s Domestic Violence Shelter’s first-ever trivia night fundraiser, held at Geneva Golf and Country Club here in Muscatine.

If you’ve read this column, you know how much I deeply care about supporting our domestic violence shelter. Trivia night will be a great time, and I don’t want you to miss it! We’ll have hors d’oeuvres, beverages for purchase at the Geneva bar, door prizes, a 50/50 raffle, silent auction items to bid on, and check this out, four tickets to an upcoming Hawkeye football game.

You should know that all home Hawkeye football games are sold out for the upcoming season. Those tickets are courtesy of the Doug Krieger family. Folks, they aren’t just any Hawkeye tickets! You’ll be sitting 19 rows off the field at the 50-yard line on the aisle, and it comes with a parking pass. I sincerely thank the Krieger family for their wonderful donation of those tickets. I appreciate their commitment to giving back to our community.

Back to trivia night. I will be your host for the evening, and I know it is going to be a lot of fun while supporting an essential place in Muscatine. The cost to attend trivia night is $40 per person, and you can have eight people (in total) at your table on your trivia team. I will include the online link to sign up and how to do it over the phone. First, online you can enter this link; https://bit.ly/MCSATrivia. If you would instead rather do it over the phone, please call MCSA directly at 563-264-3278.

Maybe you’re unable to attend because you have something else going on (only acceptable excuses would be attending a wedding or traveling somewhere exotic–I kid, I kid) but would still like to support the cause. We will accept your donation of money, items for the silent auction, or publicizing the event via sharing this column, for instance, with your family and friends and into your social network feeds.

Folks, I wish I could have won that recent billion-dollar Mega Millions. The first thing I would have done was write a check to the domestic violence shelter that would enable them to never, ever have to worry about funding. That didn’t happen, and we need your help to keep their doors open! That’s my ask; come to trivia night, enjoy your evening and leave feeling like you made a difference because you did.

Thank you, and see you Aug. 27! Oh, and a heartfelt thank you to the folks at Geneva Golf and Country Club, the staff, and board members, thank you.

I am going to leave you with some stats from our domestic violence shelter to help reiterate the work they do. In 2021, 25 women and 30 children stayed at MCSA’s Domestic Violence Shelter, and the crisis line received 438 calls from those seeking comfort, guidance, and support. By the end of May 2022, the shelter had 11 women and 10 children stay at the shelter and has received 128 calls to the crisis line.
