League of Women Voters to host ‘Constitutional Challenge’ quiz

Submitted to The Union

The U.S. Constitution and all things related to American democracy are the themes of the League of Women Voters of Western Nevada County’s first quiz fundraiser, to be held today at Gold Miners Inn in Grass Valley. Community members are invited to participate as either contestants or audience members as the League challenges teams of six to eight players with quiz questions. Anyone who would like to be on a team will be placed on one.

Fran Cole, League Programs Committee co-chair and an organizer of the event, advises participants to “Brush up on your constitutional knowledge, review your Supreme Court history, and remember key events, people, and places that have shaped our democracy.”

The evening will feature prizes and special guests — The Famous Marching Presidents of Nevada City in full costume, who will create an ambiance of living history. Everyone is welcome to dress in early American costume.

Doors will open at 6:30 and the games begin at 7 p.m. Tickets for participants cost $50 per person, $300 for a table of six, or $400 for a table of eight. Audience tickets cost $25. Tickets include an abundant appetizer and dessert buffet, while bar service will be available no-host by the Gold Miners Inn. The fundraiser is sponsored by Diamond Baker Mitchell LLP, Gold Miners Inn, The Union and Yubnet.com. For more information, contact info@lwvwnc.org.
