Trivia Night Basics

  • This is an informal fundraising event (wear your favorite old jeans and t-shirt!).   
  • Teams of eight, usually composed of family, friends, neighbors, etc., compete with other table groups in ten trivia categories. 
  • The ten trivia categories are composed of ten questions each, with topics ranging from history to pop culture.  All ages are considered when developing questions.
  • A game host reads questions aloud, with two big screens featuring each question, song or video. 
  • Results are tabulated in “real time.”
  • The team that wins receives the grand prize!
  • There is also a silent auction, 50/50 raffle and other games. 


  • Tables are not reserved by name, unless a full table is purchased online ($200). Simply meet your team upon arrival, confirm your payment at check-in, and then choose your seats. It's that simple! 
  • If you are paying for other members of your table, please have them ready to check-in under your name.   
  • If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact Eric Tucker at or call (605) 336-3190.  Thank you!



When registering online, please enter $200 in the "Other" box if you are purchasing an entire table.  Thank you!

Summer is the time for kids to get up, get out and grow! But for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year.  In fact, research shows that kids are prone to gain more weight and fall behind in studies.  On May 13th, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids.

Join us for a day of activities, interactive booths and a Family Trail Hike at beautiful YMCA Camp Leif Ericson (2301 East 26th Street, Sioux Falls). The event time will be from 10 am - 2 pm. Healthy Kids Day is FREE to the public.

We will have a variety of activities including:

  • Bouncy Houses
  • GaGa Ball Pits
  • Pedal Cars
  • Horse Petting Zoo
  • Sports Activities
  • Itty Bitty Obstacle Course
  • Delta Airlines Paper Airplane Challenge
  • YMCA Camp Family Trail Hike

  • Delta Dental of South Dakota
  • Sioux Falls Park & Rec
