The event is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 20 at the Viola Methodist Church Hall. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the game begins at 7 p.m. Teams consist of eight players. Cost is $10 per person. The winning team will receive eight tickets to a Quad City Mallards game courtesy of the Quad City Mallards.

The library is raffling off several prizes including a statue donated by Isabel Bloom, two lunch coolers with steel thermoses from Titan Machinery, two movie rentals and two $10 gift cards from Mercer Market, a gift basket from Deere Harvester Credit Union, and many more items for the raffle.

The library is also raffling off two round-trip airline tickets from AirTran anywhere they fly in the continental U.S. and a Wii with Wii Fit Plus. Tickets for these two items may be purchased beginning Feb. 1 for $1 each and winners need not be present  to win either item.
