Sorta Serious Spelling Bee
Tue, April 25, 2017, 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM CDT
Join us for a fun, grown-up spelling bee! This is not a stuffy, Scripps-like Bee; rather it's your chance to pass a good time while doing your part to promote literacy. We'll have wine; we'll have beer; and we'll have a Louisiana-themed word list. Are you up to spelling Tchoupitoulas??
Teams of three will compete to be the last team standing after four rounds: Louisiana Places, Famous People, Food, and Culture.
To join the fun and compete for Bee-Bragging rights, sign up for a Sponsorship Package or put together your own Bee Hive Team. We can even find you a team if you just sign up for an individual ticket!
And if you are not the competitive, event-going type, we are offering special Beeswax Tickets for those of you thinking, "I'll mind my own beeswax and stay at home, but I'd love to promote literacy!"
The Huey & Angelina Wilson Foundation is matching the first $20,000 in sponsorships, making your support even sweeter!
