In addition to our Annual Trivia Challenge, JATC writes grants and initiates a variety of other projects to bring in funds for our Service projects to assist us with serving the children and Youth of our County. Members, friends and supporters of JATC can all participate in these projects.

HOW YOU CAN HELP JATC RAISE FUNDS!
Annual Trivia Challenge
Our major fund-raiser is a fun Trivia Challenge with dinner, a raffle and a Silent Auction. The trivia competition features teams of eight members competing in eight interesting categories of ten questions each. Prizes for first, second and third place are awarded and the winners’ team name is engraved on the Trivia Winners Plaque.
One of our sustaining members, Doug Baker of Doug Baker State Farm Insurance, helps us obtain prizes for our raffle tickets for big-ticket items by donating $1000 cash each year. Other sustaining members such as Binswanger Glass, Pat Lambert Photography, and Mike and Betty Nell Tatman support us each year with generous donations of Show Case items and other Silent Auction items.
Enthusiastic local businesses provide donations so that the Silent Auction table typically offers 150 plus items that appeal to everyone. The signature items from 2018 included:
Four one-day park hopper passes to Disney World
An $800 certificate toward a new shower enclosure from , Binswanger Glass, Branson
Two Round Trip tickets on VIA Airlines or Silver Airways from Branson Airport
Two (2) Certificates for PADI Open Water Scuba Diving Certification from White River Dive Co.
"Explore Historical Hollister" package from the businesses located on Historical Downing Street
With proceeds from table reservations, winning bids on 169 Silent Auction items and 3 Live Auction items, and the sale of raffle tickets, our 2018 event netted over $20,000.
