A St. Charles family is to be featured on an upcoming episode of "Family Feud," which is to air at 5 p.m. Tuesday on WPWR-TV, Channel 50, according to a news release issued by the show.

The Pollastrini family – Geriann, Tony, Chris, Ron and Mike – will face the Grace family of Maywood in the episode that was taped in front of a live studio in Atlanta, the release stated.

The release does not reveal how the Pollastrinis fared.

"We auditioned for 'Family Feud' because we always watched it growing up," Geriann Pollastrini said in the release. "If we win, we will put the money toward a family vacation and donate some to the Autism Speaks Foundation as well."
