What is ScrabbeBee

Literacy Chippewa Valley is hosting our 21st Annual ScrabbleBee on September 22nd, 2022. 

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.

  • Basket Suggestions: Choose a theme around a book (scrapbooking, fishing, a children’s book, traveling, quilting, golfing, gardening, cooking, etc.).  A copy of the book should be included among the items in the basket. 

  • Baskets should be valued at approximately $125.
