BENEFITING: 826Chi, Inc. NFP

EVENT: Scrabble for Cheaters 2016

EVENT DATE: Feb 27, 2016

THE STORY:

The Cause

We're raising money to support 826CHI, which runs workshops, tutoring hours, in-school sessions, and so much more than I even know about to encourage young people in Chicago write and keep writing and feel confident in their use of language. We're both big fans of the organization and love going there to hang out/help out. So your money goes toward supporting programs that keep young people in Chicago writing, and keep this place open that is such a refuge for us.

 

The Event

Scrabble for Cheaters is a event where we play cut-throat Scrabble and can "buy" cheats with the money we've raised. So while your money goes toward supporting great writing programs, we also get to use it to crush other people at Scrabble and maybe win prizes (though for me it's more about winning at Scrabble than getting prizes).

 

The People

Kari and Zak were in the same MA cohort at the University of Chicago and are now united in the project of beating people at Scrabble and helping other people make art.
