Square One to Present Virtual Trivia Night Fundraiser on April 8

SPRINGFIELD — On Thursday, April 8, Square One will host a family-friendly virtual trivia night. Proceeds from the event will benefit Square One’s Campaign for Healthy Kids, a multi-year fund-development initiative focused on the agency’s commitment to providing healthy meals, physical fitness, social and emotional well-being, and a healthy learning environment.

Tickets for the event cost $20 and can be purchased by visiting www.startatsquareone.org. In addition to a prize of an Apple Watch for the game winner, the evening will include raffles for other prizes, including jewelry, toys, games, and gift cards. Trivia questions will be geared toward children and adults.

“We are so grateful to the team at Brian Nicks Productions for volunteering to host this event in support of our work,” said Kristine Allard, vice president of Development & Communications at Square One. “Brian truly embodies what it means to be a community partner, giving generously of his time and talent to benefit our Square One children and families.”

Square One currently provides early-learning services to more than 500 infants, toddlers, and school-age children each day, and family-support services to 1,500 families each year, as they work to overcome the significant challenges in their lives. The large majority of Square One families come from situations involving poverty, homelessness, food insecurity, and other significant barriers that may inhibit their ability to get their children off to a good start in life.
