To ensure your convenience throughout the night, we will ask our guests to provide credit card information at registration in order for you to purchase raffles, contests and make donations. Your credit card information WILL NOT be stored by BCDI or any outside company.



NOTE- When parking for free at the Marquee and Fulton Lot’s at the Civic Center: pull up to the gate and tell the attendee that you are a BCDI Trivia Night guest and you will be allowed access!

All BCDI Trivia Night guests and attendees have the option to park at the Civic Center free of charge! To access the event parking, please enter Civic Center’s Marquee Parking Lot at the corner of Gwynn Avenue and Kumpf Boulevard (see attached picture).


There is additional parking available through the Civic Center adjunct parking lot, the Fulton Lot (at the corner of SW Monroe St and Fulton St). See the attached picture below for a view of where to find this lot.




One of the best parts of BCDI Trivia Night is the FUN had during the event! This year, we are excited to bring back some of our fan favorites, plus some new activities! We have six premier raffle baskets this year, our famous beer and wine pull, a gift card station, a chance to win your very own Pop-A-Shot raffle and a new golf putting game for a chance to win an exciting prize! For more information on the raffles and contests at Trivia Night 2024, please visit our Trivia Night website!



The theme for BCDI Trivia Night 2024 is “24 Karat Gold” to honor the year 2024! With that theme in mind, we are asking all attendees to wear their favorite gold themed outfits! BCDI Trivia Night is not a formal event- we want our guests to have a fun time and make the most of the theme! If you would like to dress fancy- that’s wonderful- if you would like to dress goofy in a gold costume- we encourage that! As a matter of fact, BCDI will be judging outfits throughout the night and one lucky winner will receive a grand prize during the costume contest announcement!



Get ready for our enthralling, five-round trivia game contest! The competition will be played in teams with your table compromising your ten-person team.  

Each table will assign one team leader to play the Trivia game on their cell phone. One person per table will submit answers during the game. If you are not your team’s leader, PLEASE put your phone away- looking up answers is strictly prohibited and your team will be disqualified if caught! 

To play Trivia: 

  • Visit to access the online competition webpage. 
  • Enter room code: BCDI 
  • Create a team name for the competition to appear on the leaderboard. Please use a team name PLUS your table number. Example: The Blood Experts 7 (if sitting at Table 7) 
  • There will be five rounds of trivia with ten questions in each round. Correct answers are worth 100 points. 



All of the Peoria Civic Center bars at the event are cashless. However, if you wish to purchase raffle tickets, participate in games or contests, or make donations during the event with cash or check, that is welcomed! In the event of rainy/cold weather, a coat rack will be provided outside of the Ballroom area. Please make sure to have your phones charged or bring your phone charger just in case, as the trivia game will be played on your phone at your table, as well as raffles and donations can be viewed/made online.


We can’t wait to see you soon for our 13th Annual Trivia Night! If you have any questions leading up to the event, please contact Matt McVey at 309-692-5337. Thank you for your support as we continue to raise awareness for the bleeding and clotting disorders community!
