Part of JATC’s mission is to develop and host events that generate income needed to support our service projects. The funds raised are 100% reinvested in our community.
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 2019 included:
Four passports to a taping of Wheel of Fortune
$800 certificate toward a new shower enclosure from, Binswanger Glass - Branson
A Four Hour Sail on the Lucille Marie donated by Patti and Sandy Sanders
Dick Clark's American Bandstand Package which included 12 tickets to various shows.
2 Round Trip Tickets on Frontier Airlines from Branson Airport
$1,100 vacation package to St. Louis, MO
With proceeds from table reservations, winning bids on 133 Silent Auction items, a Wine Pull, a 50/50 Drawing, and the sale of raffle tickets, our 2019 event netted over $20,000.
