Open your organization to a fun, team-building exercise, friendly competition – and breakfast.

The Literary Alliance of the Shuswap Society (LASS) is fundraising with its inaugural Team Spelling Bee to take place from 7:30 to 9 a.m. Friday, May 2 at the Prestige Harbourfront Resort.

Get together with friends and co-workers in an old-fashioned spelling bee with a twist.

It’s a team activity and no one spells alone.

The Observer is challenge other businesses or service groups to participate in one of three sponsorship categories: gold – table of eight for $1,000; silver – four people for $500 or bronze – $100 per person.

Sponsorship gets advertising on all promotions as well as a charitable tax receipt.

Fundraising has become an important function for LASS as the Ministry of Education has reduced funding for literacy co-ordinators across the province and is rumoured to be withdrawing all funding next year.

Participation in the spelling bee will help fund several programs directed at improving literacy for children, families and seniors  both in reading and becoming financially and computer savvy.

To register, visit shuswapliteracy.ca or contact LASS co-ordinator Jennifer Findlay by sending an email to admin@shuswapliteracy.ca or call 250-833-2095.
