Literacy Council Spelling Bee Team Fundraiser


How well can you spell without spell check? Test your ability in a team spelling competition to see how well you really know the English language. Form your own “hive” (team) of eight or come on your own to get to know new people in a unique setting.  For those who always dreaded spelling tests, don’t worry—you can rely on your teammates at this event.

Throughout the evening, you’ll also get to hear from Literacy Council students—adults who are taking free, small-group classes with volunteer tutors. Hear their stories of where they are from, what motivates them to learn English, and the impact it has had on their lives.

Each $60 ticket includes dinner, one glass of wine or beer for those 21+, and entry into the spelling bee. Dessert will be auctioned off by table, and we’ll also have live and silent auctions for you to enjoy.
