The Spelling Bee was the first fundraiser to raise funds and awareness for literacy. The first BEE was held in 1999 and celebrated the 10th anniversary with a “Spellabration” in 2008. The Spelling Bee continues to “bee” a fun way to raise funds and awareness for literacy. Businesses and Community agencies sponsor a three person team to compete for the title of Spelling Bee Champ.
