Welcome to the Whittier PTO!

Whittier Trivia Night this Saturday!
Join us for Whittier PTO’s 3rd Annual Trivia Night this Saturday, January 20th, 7PM-11PM at the Nineteenth Century Club.  We’ll have WBEZ’s Lisa Labuz as our emcee, a live auction, drinks, food, and Trivia!  Tickets cost $45 at the door— join or form a team or let us assign you to one. 

Whittier Trivia Night Needs Volunteers
We have a fabulous night planned with an AWESOME crew of volunteers, but we still need 2 Spotters (scorekeepers) in the 9-10:30 slots and 1 Live Auction Tracker 8:45-9:15 to make this night a success!  These shifts happen during the trivia portion of the event, so you won’t be able to play, but you’ll still have time to socialize and you’ll get into the event FREE!  Please check out our signup today!
