ALTON - Brian Hanson is the kind of guy who would help anyone, anytime. As the facilities manager at Calvary Baptist Church in Alton, Brian has the know-how not only to keep things running at the church, but to help others, church members or not, with various household needs.

Now that Brain and his family are in need, the Calvary family is stepping up. Brian was seriously injured in an automobile accident on Homer Adams Parkway in late September. Doctors at first thought Brian might not walk again. He is making great progress at a rehab facility in Lincoln Ne., but he and his family will still face many large expenses they never imagined in the coming months and years.

Calvary will host a trivia night to benefit the Hanson family at 7 p.m. Friday, February 23, in the church’s Christian Life Center, 1422 Washington Ave, in Alton. Tables of eight are $160 each. Participants can bring their own food, while, soda, water and popcorn will be provided. No outside beverages are permitted and this is a non-alcohol event.

“As someone who has played in and also hosted many trivia nights, I can tell you that the most successful trivia nights are the ones that have a face attached to them,” said Dave Whaley, a deacon at Calvary who will serve as emcee. “Brian certainly doesn’t want to be in this position, but there isn’t a better guy anywhere. He and his family are loved around the church and around the community, so we are looking forward to helping and showing God’s love through our actions.”

The trivia night will also feature silent auction baskets and door prizes. Doors open at 6 p.m. For more information, to reserve your table or donate silent auction items call 618-789-0035. Checks should be made payable to Calvary Baptist Church and include “Hanson” on the memo line.
