Scrabble® Fundraising Tournament 2019

Posted: December 13th

Since the event started over 20 years ago has raised over $160,000. This money is raised through sponsorships, donations and the tournament itself.

But it's not all about the money. This event also raises awareness about the adult literacy issues in our community.

Where does the money raised go?

The work we do is so important. We provide programs to help adults achieve their goals. These goals can be anything from being able to read a book to their child to being able to manage their personal finances.

Money raised through events like this and through donations help ensure that we are able to provide these life-changing services free of charge to people in the community.

How Can I Help?

We welcome any support the community is willing to give.
