Got a Question? We’ve Got an Answer
Q: What if I don’t have a team of 4?
A: Join us anyway – whether you have a team of 3 or 6 or 8!
Q: Do I have to register in advance?
A: It helps us seat friends next to friends. But we’ll take your money at the door, too.
Q: How can I pay the $20 per person registration fee?
A: You have options:
- Use your credit card online at https://www.myastheniagravis.org/trivia-night-fundraiser-february-11/. The online portal closes at 5pm Friday, February 10.
- Mail or drop off a check to our office by Friday, February 10. Make it payable to Conquer MG, 275 N. York St., Suite 401, Elmhurst IL 60126.
- 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. $15 of every $20 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 ($1.75) and mixed drinks ($4.00).
Q: Your flyer says to bring snacks?
A: No food is sold at the bar (nada – we mean it). So feel free to bring your own! Chips, dip, fruit plates, whatever! (Just leave the crockpots at home.)
Q: Did you say “prizes”?
A: Door prizes between rounds! You’ll have 8 chances to win. A trophy and prize for the winning team, bragging rights for the teams who come in 2nd and 3rd, medals for the best team name (be creative!), 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.
