POTEAU–The Pervasive Parenting Center will host Trivia Night on March 7. The event will be held at The Community State Bank in Poteau to raise funds for the center.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
This year’s theme will be Zombie Apocalypse, so dress as zombies or your favorite characters.
The event will start at 7 p.m., with registration beginning at 6 p.m.
Funds raised will go to the Pervasive Parenting Center and will be used to help families in the area coping with disabilities.
Price to participate will be $100 per team. The teams can include from six to 10 members. Prizes will be given for first and second-place teams as well as best costume as a team and as an individual.
There will be free food and drinks for participants.
“The Special Olympics used to hold a similar event, and it was so much fun we decided to pick it up and host it,” said Kodey Toney, center director. “We are working hard to help the families of this area coping with disabilities find resources to help make life better. The funds raised from this event can help us continue the success we had last year.”
The Pervasive Parenting Center was launched in 2014 to help families in eastern Oklahoma find resources available for people diagnosed with autism and other disabilities.
“We just want to be a place where people can come for answers,” said Toney. “I know how crazy it can seem for a family who has just received a diagnosis if you don’t know what to do next. We can help you find what is out there and where you need to go.”
Entry forms can be picked up and dropped off at the following establishments: Poteau Daily News, Clip Joint, and Carl Albert State College in Sallisaw. The deadline for registration in Feb. 27. Checks should be made payable to Pervasive Parenting Center and can be mailed to PO Box 574, Panama, OK 74951.
