The money raised will help build an inclusive playground in Perrysburg at Rotary Park.

The playground will be the first of its kind in Wood County, built so children of all abilities can play together.

Leaders with the Wood County Plays organization say there are many kids and families in our community who cannot use a traditional playground due to accessibility issues, safety concerns and a lack of inclusive equipment.

You can sign up a team of 4 or 8 members, for $150 and $300, respectively.

Here's how it works: Each team will be given two parking spots at St. George’s Banquet Hall in Rossford. Two rounds of Sporcle Trivia will be played with questions delivered over an FM-frequency and answers submitted on smartphones.

It’s not just trivia, but dinner and dessert. Teams will be delivered pizza and cookies right at their tailgate site. Each team is encouraged to bring lawn chairs, tents, blankets and anything else to make their tailgate feel right at home!
