4th Annual Winter Funder-land

Thursday, January 18 2018 - 7pm
Jerry's Sandwiches, Lincoln Square - 4739 N Lincoln Ave. Chicago
Our 4th Annual Winter Funder-land, presented by the ASC Auxiliary Board, will feature games, prizes, and a night of community-building in support of Season 14: Literacy, including our Adventures in Storytelling festival, the original play Roots in the Alley, and the Trailblazers' Spring 2018 showcase.

10 teams of 4 will face off at 5 stations, competing for prizes and bragging rights! The night will kick off with last year's word-game hit, Salad Bowl. We'll move on to Trivia before wrapping things up with a rousing Spelling Bee. The event also features a 50-50 raffle.

Recruit a team of 4 (or buy a single ticket and network on a new team) and join in some good-natured competition for a good cause!  Team tickets ($80) and Individual tickets ($25) only cover entry into the event, but please note a portion of all food and drink purchased in the Game Room will benefit ASC.
