Scrabble for Cheaters is a Scrabble tournament with a dishonest twist for an honest cause. Here’s how it works:
30 teams pledge to fundraise on behalf of 826CHI's creative writing programs. Dollars raised will be used to purchase "cheats," which can be used to decimate your opponents.
On Saturday, February 27th, after weeks of peer-to-peer fundraising, teams will go head-to-head in a Scrabble tournament, using their hard-earned arsenal of cheats to win a series of 45-minute games. Champions take home a custom-designed Scrabble board, gloriously gaudy trophy, and critical acclaim for eternity.
This year, we aim to raise $20,000. Every donation helps ensure that each of our 2,000+ students can attend our literary arts programs, free-of-cost.
Can we count on your trickery?
