MCAEL's 4th Annual Grown-Up Spelling Bee to Support Adult English Literacy
Wed, April 5, 2017, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM EDT
MCAEL is proud to announce the Fourth Annual Grown-Up Spelling Bee for Adult English Literacy. Catch the Buzz and mark your calendars now for April 5th, 2017! Join MCAEL Staff, board, providers, instructors, community leaders and some of the coalition’s 13,000+ adult learners to raise money for and awareness about English literacy in Montgomery County, MD.
Ready, Set, S-p-e-l-l!
Release your inner geek and cheer on teams of three as they compete in a grown-up spelling bee! The champion team for 2016 was Social & Scientific Systems. Will they t-r-i-u-m-p-h or will another team Buzz away with the victory?
Special emcee Kathleen Matthews formerly of WJLA-Channel 7 and Marriott Corporation will join us for this r-a-m-b-u-n-c-t-i-o-u-s evening to support adult English literacy in Montgomery County.
What's the Buzz all about?
One in 10 limited English proficient adults in Montgomery County does not read or write well enough to fill out a job application. Montgomery Coalition for Adult English Literacy (MCAEL) is here to change that.
Every $1 invested in adult education garners our community $3 in return. Proceeds from the Grown Up Spelling bee will support MCAEL’s efforts to address English literacy needs in Montgomery County.
The Place to Bee:
Be a part of our hive of spectators and enjoy a fun night of food, cocktails, spelling and p-h-i-l-a-n-t-h-r-o-p-y! Wednesday, April 5, 2017 6:30pm-8:30pm
Invite your friends, colleagues, help us spread the buzz!
