Spectators are invited to come out and cheer on their favorite teams during the annual CLICK Trivia Bee, which begins tonight at 7 p.m. at the Carnegie Library in downtown Newnan.
Those attending also have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for donated prizes at the event, which will again feature Danny Beck as emcee and Jimmy Bass as musical entertainment. This year’s team sponsors and partners include: Newnan Kiwanis Club; Newnan Peachtree City Area Employer Committee; Cargill - Partner: Newnan High School; Steve & Marie Swope Foundation; SouthTowne - Partner: Smokey Road Middle School; United Bank; Newnan Utilities; Mark Whitlock - Partner school: CEC; Coweta-Fayette EMC - Partner: East Coweta High School; West Georgia Technical College; Rotary Club of Newnan - Partner: Evans Middle School.
Johnston added that 10 percent of downtown restaurant Fabiano’s dine-in and carry-out proceeds from 5-10 p.m. tonight will benefit CLICK’s literacy programs.
CLICK’s mission is “to enable all individuals to improve their quality of life through literacy,” helping local citizens learn to read, write, do basic math and use computers with a view to ensuring they have the skills to lift themselves out of poverty, contribute to improved health care costs, and find and keep sustainable employment.
In 2012 CLICK had 25 volunteer tutors assisting adults in improving basic literacy skills, and also offering pre-GED and ESL tutoring in adult education classes, Johnson said. CLICK also provided GED test fee scholarships to 35 GED students, many of whom earned their GED and were able to pursue employment or college, she said.
