Got a Question? We’ve Got an Answer

Q: What if I don’t have a team of 6?

A: It doesn’t change the cost of the table.

 

Q: Do I have to register in advance?

A: It helps us keep track. But we’ll take your money at the door, too.

 

Q: How can I pay the $192 table fee?

A: You have options:

  • Use your credit card online at http://www.myastheniagravis.org/trivia-night-fundraiser-february-11/. The online portal closes at 5pm Friday, February 23.

  • Pay at the door with cash, check, or credit card.

 

Q: Is any part of the registration fee tax-deductible?

A: Event proceeds support Conquer Myasthenia Gravis, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. $90 of every $192 table registration fee is tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

 

Q: Will the bar be open during the game?

A: Of course! You can support the Elmhurst American Legion with your purchase of beer ($2.75) and mixed drinks ($5.00).

 

Q: Did you say “prizes”?

A: Door prizes between rounds! A trophy and prize for the winning team, and the judge’s decisions are final.

 

Q: What’s the parking situation?

A: Plentiful and free.

 

Q: What is myasthenia gravis?

A: Myasthenia gravis is a rare autoimmune disease that disrupts the communication between nerve and muscles, causing sometimes severe muscle weakness. It can affect the eyes and facial muscles; swallowing and talking; limbs, neck and torso; and even breathing muscles. There are treatments, but no cure.

 

Q: Who is Conquer Myasthenia Gravis?

A: Formerly known as the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of Illinois, Conquer MG has served people who struggle with this challenging disease since 1976 – with programs of support, education, awareness, and research funding.
