Spellebration 2016: Passport to Literacytravel

Around the World in 80 Words

Friday, March 4 – doors open at 5:30 and spelling begins at 6:00 p.m.

Spellebration will be held on Friday, March 4, beginning at 5:30 at the Hotel Colorado.

Spellebration is an adult spelling bee and silent auction for Literacy Outreach and the CMC Learning Labs. Teams of three costumed spellers make their way through increasingly challenging list of words. Teams can spell or buy their way to bragging rights as the best spellers in Garfield County.

“Passport to Literacy” gives emphasis to the goals of both Literacy Outreach and CMC’s Learning Labs. The theme provides the opportunity for teams to dress in the native costumes of the world’s cultures or, alternately, to adopt other travel-related costumes. The joys and trials of travel will be celebrated throughout the evening.

An essential part of the entertainment is the annual silent auction, always crowded with treasures.

Anyone willing to join in the fun and also support adult literacy in Garfield County is encouraged to assemble a team, locate a sponsor, chose a costume and come play with the festive crowd on March 4. To sign up, or to get more information, call Literacy Outreach at 970-945-5282.

In addition, local businesses who would like to sponsor a team can call Literacy Outreach, as can donors who wish to contribute to the silent auction.
