The Literacy Council of Fort Bend challenges your orthographic capacity
Are you an unparalleled orthographer with a penchant for bacchanalia? Then it’s time to put your currency where your orifice is and enter a team! On Thursday, September 12, CenterPoint Energy presents the Great Grown-Up Spelling Bee which will take place at the University of Houston-Sugar Land.
Enunciation is rarely a drunkard’s strength, so keep that in mind when you venture over to the tables with local craft beers, donated by Karbach Brewery, and fine wines donated by Beviamo International.
Those not interested in participating but who want to support the Literacy Council of Fort Bend County can sponsor a word for $200, sponsor a letter for $100 or serve as an event sponsor starting at $5,000. Spectator bees will be allowed to view the event and general admission tickets are available for $40. Raffle tickets are being sold for $5 a ticket for the chance at scoring an iPad Mini.
Every dollar counts towards educating our community, so dust off your dictionary and start practicing. Participants will receive great prizes, but more importantly raise money for an excellent cause. Rosenberg Mayor, Vincent Morales, Jr., Richmond Mayor, Evalyn Moore, and Literacy Council of Fort Bend County Board Treasurer, Shayne Newell, will be the judges for the evening. Spectators are welcome to heckle between rounds and spellings. Come on out and support the Literacy Council of Fort Bend County!
