Cape Fear Literacy Council proudly announces the 27th Annual Spelling Bee for Literacy on Thursday, September 18, 2014 at 7 PM at the Pine Valley United Methodist Church (3788 Shipyard Boulevard in Wilmington). We invite the community to share in this fun evening devoted to words! Admission is FREE and there will be light refreshments, audience games and prizes, and fun for both audience and competitors. You can help your favorite team with the “Best Cheering Section” prize!
Not the traditional spelling bee, this friendly competition fields teams of three adults who work together to spell words that are increasingly more difficult in each round. The grand prize- in addition to bragging rights – is the engraved, traveling Championship Trophy. Other team prizes include “Best Team Name,” “Best Costume” and “Best Cheering Section” prize! Businesses, civic groups and individuals are invited to register a team for $375 or become a sponsor at the $500, $1,000 or $2,500 level. Friends of literacy can also “Adopt-a-Letter” for a $100 donation per letter of the alphabet.
This is the most popular Spelling Bee in Wilmington and is always a sold-out event for team entries. Gather your best spellers, your wildest supporters and your funniest costumes today and call (910) 251-0911 or visit www.cfliteracy.org to become a sponsor or register your team!
