The Story

EVENT DATE: Mar 22, 2012

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Mar 21, 2012

FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: Mar 22, 2012

Ten teams of three adults each will compete in the word challenge of their lives on Thursday, March 22, 2012.

 

The team that abdicates the superfluous squads by spelling "abcoulomb" and "zyzzyva" will walk away with the distinction: Best Spellers in Buncombe County! But teams must have both spelling and concentration skills in order to disregard the pandemonium caused by a costumed, cheering audience!

 

And spellers beware of other chiselling teams--the more moolah a team raises ahead of time through Crowdrise, the more they are permitted to cheat...

  • $25      acquires the Word Origin

  • $100    purchases the opportunity to Ask an Audience Member
  • $200    buys an Easier Word

 

The "Who Wants to be a Spellionaire? Adult Spelling Bee" benefits the Literacy Council of Buncombe County (LCBC). LCBC teaches adults basic reading, writing, math, and English language skills through individual and small group instruction by trained volunteers.   Students gain self-confidence and develop self-sufficiency to transform their lives as individuals, parents, workers, and citizens.
