Have you heard the newzzzzz? The Literacy Council of Fort Bend is preparing for our 5th annual Great Grown-Up Spelling Bee, presented by CenterPoint Energy! The Bee will take place on Thursday, September 18, 2014, from 6:30 p.m.- 8:30 p.m. at the University of Houston-Sugar Land, located at 59 South and University Boulevard.

Even if you’re not a champion speller, come watch local corporations, friends and family members compete against one another in this exciting event. Individual Spectator Bee tickets are $40 in advance, and there are numerous ways for you and/or your company to participate (attached). The winning team will receive a place in our “Honey Hall of Fame,” but more importantly, they will earn the b-r-a-g-g-a-d-o-c-i-o rights as the “Best Grown-Up Spellers in Fort Bend County.”

All proceeds from the Great Grown-Up Spelling Bee will support the life-changing programs offered at the
Literacy Council. With your support, we can continue to provide our students with better employment opportunities as well as improve family, community and professional lives through adult literacy education.

For more information, please contact Events &     Communications Coordinator, Christina Guerra or Development Director, Nicola Johnson. A registration form is enclosed for your convenience. We hope to see you at the Bee on Thursday, September 18, 2014!
