This month we recognize the National Runaway Safeline Associate Board for raising over $2,000 at a Trivia Night fundraiser on May 9 at Derno’s on Diversey.

Associate Board: Lauren, Courtney, Gwen, Alex, Jenna, Marie, Tim, and Katelynn

The National Runaway Safeline Associate Board is a group of young professionals in Chicago dedicated to building awareness and raising funds to support NRS’ critical services for runaway, homeless, and at-risk youth and their families.

Trivia Night at Derno’s was a huge success! 12 trivia teams battled through six challenging rounds of trivia, answering questions about Chicago history, current events, movies, music, and more! After a sudden-death tiebreaker round, the winning team, ‘Suck it Trebek,’ won a grand prize of $100 at Parlor Pizza!
