A Wild and Wacky Event for a Great Cause
Kalamazoo Public Library hosts the Great Grown-up Spelling Bee to benefit Ready to Read, our early childhood literacy program. The 14th Annual Great Grown-up Spelling Bee, held Wednesday, November 19, 2014, at Western Michigan University’s Bernhard Center, was another “wildly” successful event!
We raised more than $20,000 again this year, and 100% of the proceeds will be used to purchase books for Kalamazoo County children. Fourteen wonderfully creative, enthusiastic and entertaining community teams competed for this year’s spelling and team spirit awards. Or heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone who makes this event possible.
See the Bee on TV!
The Great Grown-Up Spelling Bee will all air on PMN Channel 187 on Charter (Channel 99 on U-Verse) starting Saturday, November 22 and running through Saturday, December 13.
