BENEFITING: 826Chi, Inc. NFP

EVENT: Scrabble for Cheaters 2016

EVENT DATE: Feb 27, 2016

Micki Burton and Emma Rubenstein

THE STORY:

Scrabble for Cheaters is a Scrabble tournament with a dishonest twist for an honest cause. 30 teams pledge to fundraise on behalf of 826CHI's creative writing programs.

Spellma & Louise is made up of two former 826CHI interns, English majors, feminists, and longtime friends. We are competing for Scrabble glory in the journey of a lifetime. While that journey won't be taking us through the southern part of the United States via car, it COULD very well end in Mexico - the top fundraisers win a stay at a Playa del Carmen condo. LOUISE, GET US TO MEXICO.

But we need your help! Dollars raised will be used to purchase "cheats," which can be used to decimate our opponents during Scrabble gameplay! "There's no such thing as justifiable robbery" EXCEPT when a win is on the line. ANY and ALL donations are welcome and appreciated.

Best of all, the money raised goes directly back to 826 to support their free educational programming to students around Chicago. We've both seen the impact that 826CHI's programming has had on the communities they serve, and we are both so pleased to fundraise for such a wonderful organization.

xoxox, Spellma and Louise (aka Emma and Micki)
