Scrabble® Fundraising Tournament
Our 15th Annual Tournament was a huge hit!
Thank you to everyone who came out to play and raised money for the Thunder Bay Literacy Group! The final tally isn't in yet, but I think we raised over $12,000.00 - a fantastic result!
Website will be updated with pictures and results soon. In the mean time....http://www.tbnewswatch.com/artsandlife/265443/Words-with-friends
What is the Corporate Challenge?
Want to help support the cause of adult literacy?
Many businesses and community agencies participate in the Corporate Challenge! Unlike the regular tournament, Corporate Challengers play only one game at 12:30 p.m. Prizes are awarded for highest pledge, highest combined team pledge, highest score and each individual who raises over $250 will be entered in our Grand Prize draw (TBA) ! It is not necessary to enter a full team - 1 to 4 players can represent your company. Each player must raise a minimum of $35. Why not join us this year and support the TBLG in helping adults achieve their goals.
Many thanks to the 2012 Corporate Challenge players! Your enthusiasm and support are most appreciated!
