ScrabbleBee 2021

September 30th, 2021

ScrabbleBee needs YOU!

The 21st annual ScrabbleBee is coming to the Lismore Hotel in Eau Claire on September 22, 2022, and we are looking for sponsors! 

Talk to your company about chipping in to help support literacy education in the Chippewa Valley. Everything helps, but there are additional benefits to sponsoring at the tile level and up- including free team registrations, brand recognition during the event, and inclusion in the ScrabbleBee marketing campaign this summer.

We look forward to seeing you at the event, and appreciate your continued support!

What is ScrabbeBee

Literacy Chippewa Valley is hosting our 20th Annual ScrabbleBee on September 30th, 2021 at the Lizmore downtown Eau Claire.


What is ScrabbleBee?

ScrabbleBee is our annual fundraising event where our guests play Scrabble. There are two ways our participants can play:

  • Hare version

  • Tortoise version


Here’s how it works: “Hare” teams work with each other – and against the clock – to build as many high-scoring words on the Scrabble® board as possible. Three games are played throughout the evening, and the team with the highest total score for all three games is the winner. In addition to the fast-paced play, there is also a “Tortoise” division that plays traditional Scrabble®. Other activities include a silent auction, raffles, prizes, and food. 

Teams are encouraged to raise donations for their team before the event.  Prizes will be awarded for individuals and teams who raise the most funds in their division! 
  • Individual  – Highest Fundraising

  • Team – Highest Fundraising

  • Team – Most Points Scored



Proceeds from individual and team donations and corporate sponsorships help us continue to provide literacy services for adults in Chippewa, Dunn, and Eau Claire counties.
