Annual Pirate Pete Trivia Night Returns Friday, 4/5 at Palatine High 

Pirate Pete Trivia Night returns to Palatine High School to support the Ray Mills Fund. The fund is named after a former Palatine High School teacher and counselor who regularly went out of his way to help students in need. The fund, established in Mills' honor, has fulfilled a wide range of student needs at Palatine High School including school and project supplies, sports physicals for athletes, nutritious snacks, graduation gown rental fees, and so much more.

To support this fund, Pirate Pete Trivia Night will be held on Friday, April 5th starting at 7:00 p.m. in the Palatine High School cafeteria, 1111 N. Rohlwing Road. Tables are $50 for a team of up to eight players, and all are welcome to participate including teachers, students, and community members.
