ScrabbleBee event supports Literacy Chippewa Valley

By  | 

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Community members put their spelling to the test to support a local organization.

People gathered at The Lismore in Eau Claire for the 16th Annual Chippewa Valley ScrabbleBee.

Organizers said 40 teams competed and played three rounds of Scrabble.

The event also included prizes, raffles, and food.

The goal is to raise money for area literacy programs.

"There's so many ways literacy impacts people's lives, quality of life, not only of individuals, but also families in the community. So the more we can do as an organization the more benefit the community will see. So we are here Thursday night to have fun and raise money for a good cause," said ScrabbleBee Co-Chair Terri Hoepner.

All proceeds from the ScrabbleBee go directly to Literacy Chippewa Valley programs and services.
