Can you imagine going through life not being able to read? To date, nearly 120,000 people in Franklin County have low literacy skills. Columbus Literacy Council is a volunteer-driven nonprofit that strives to improve the lives of these individuals. 95% of our students are at or below the poverty level and the Council is recognized in Central Ohio as the provider for those individuals and families that have no financial resources to pursue their goals. Your contribution will strengthen and sustain life-changing services that give our students the opportunity to reach their full potential!
Letters for Literacy will take place on September 8, 2015 (International Literacy Day) from 6-11pm at Seventh Son Brewing in Columbus, Ohio. 100% of the proceeds will benefit Columbus Literacy Council. Support us by participating in the tournament or raising money as part of our Crowdrise campaign.
1st place in the tournament will receive $200 and a trophy, with consolation prizes for 2nd and 3rd place.
The team that raises the most money through our Crowdrise campaign leading up to the event will win a prize valued at $100 (TBD) and will be honored at the event. Individuals and Scrabble teams are all welcome to participate.
