Celebrate literacy

0219scrabble.gifThis story might be a bit biased: I admit it; I love Scrabble. So Intercity Shopping Centre’s 11th Annual Scrabble┬« Magic Fundraising Tournament sounds like a great idea. How can you turn down the opportunity to competitively create obscure words out of a random selection of letters?

Given that the tournament raised over $9000 last year, I must not be the only one that feels that way. The tournament is organized by the Thunder Bay Literacy Group, and the money supports their adult literacy programs. With the help of community sponsorship, the event organizers are making sure that everyone goes home a winner. The top pledge earners have a shot at the grand prize, and there are prizes for the highest score earners (last year’s leader had a two-game combined score of 832). There’s also a draw for those who earn more than $100 in pledges and a “make a word” fundraising game. Local celebrities also get a shot in the Celebrity Challenge.
