MANCHESTER, NH – As part of its ongoing mission to support youth in need across greater Manchester, the Queen City Rotary Club proudly announces its fall fundraiser, The Queen City Quest & Trivia Night, to be held at 4 p.m. on September 29, 2018 at St. George Greek Orthodox Cathedral, 650 Hanover St., Manchester
“The Quest is a wonderful part of our legacy,” said Lisa Lally, President, Queen City Rotary Club. “And as with all of our efforts, 100% of the proceeds directly benefit youth across the community.”
Formally known as the Queen City Road Rally, the Quest is a scavenger hunt on wheels, according to Lally. “Teams compete against each other to figure out clues and puzzles to find their next destination in the quickest time with the most correct answers. It’s also a neat way to explore Manchester and its history.”
Lally noted that the Quest has been held for more than 30 years and that many teams return each year to take part. “Old and new teams alike love the challenge,” she said.
And what is the key to a successful Quest?
“Puzzle solving skills, a good imagination, a vehicle to navigate through Manchester and most of all … a sense of humor,” said Rotarian Monica Labonville.
Not only do ‘Questers’ have fun and learn more about Manchester, they are also supporting our local youth community,” Labonville added. She noted that all proceeds benefit Greater Manchester youth organizations. “Our club was thrilled to support more than 40 organizations this past spring dispersing over $50,000 in grants. Helping kids in need is at the heart of our Club’s mission and the annual Quest is one way we support that.”
The cost to participate is $140 per car. Registration includes the Quest, post-event buffet dinner, prizes, silent auction, raffles and a trivia contest hosted by WMUR’s Sean McDonald.
The club is also making tickets available ($20 in advance, $25 at the door) if someone only wants to attend dinner and the Trivia Contest.
