As they continue their support of defender Kevin Alston, who was recently diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia, the Revolution have joined with The Midnight Riders in giving a chance for fans of the club to put their knowledge of the Revs, of sports, and of pop culture to good use.

Thursday night at The Banshee in Dorchester they'll host a trivia night where all proceeds will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Alston himself is expected to attend, along with a number of teammates including Matt Reis, Kelyn Rowe, and Stephen McCarthy, and they'll be competing in a contest that offers giveaways and a variety of prizes, including Revolution tickets and autographed memorabilia. The Rev Girls will be there, too.

"As soon as we heard about Kevin and his diagnosis, we came to the team to help however we could,” said Fran Harrington, president of the Midnight Riders, which is an independent group of Revolution supporters. “Our first idea was a trivia night, which coincidentally was what the team had in mind as well, so we decided to combine our efforts and throw one trivia night to raise some money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and show our boy Kevin support.”

The 21-plus event begins at 7:30 p.m., with tickets available for purchase here. And if you can't make that event, but still want to support Alston, the Revolution are expected to announce soon that June 8 -- when the team plays DC United -- will be Kevin Alston Bobblehead Night.
