10th Anniversary Great Grown-Up Spelling Bee for Literacy!
Tuesday, April 23, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (CDT)
The Great Grown-Up Spelling Bee for Literacy is the signature event of the Literacy Coalition of Central Texas – and like Austin, we like to keep it weird!
Costumed teams of 3 representing local businesses like H-E-B, Silicon Labs, and the Austin American-Statesman duke it out for the title of “Best Spellers in Austin,” and all the funds raised go directly to support programs for a network of nearly 50 community-based literacy programs.
This year is extra special because it’s the 10th Anniversary of this madcap event!
Ticket price includes entry to pre-show cocktail reception at Zach Theatre’s gorgeous Skyline Lounge featuring delicious heavy hors d’oeuvres and grown-up refreshments, 2 drink tickets, souvenir take-home cup, and a great view of the main event!
We're proud to present Keri Bellacosa of FOX 7's Good Day Austin as the event emcee, KUT's Morning Edition announcer Jennifer Stayton as the official pronouncer, and illusions by Ray Anderson of Esther's Follies! The program is chock-full of exciting local celebrities who have joined the effort to improve literacy rates across our community.
Cocktail Reception at 6pm, the show starts at 7pm. Bee There!
