Reading Partners Celebrity Spelling Bee


Join us on Thursday, April 21 for a fun-filled evening of spelling (and misspelling) to benefit Reading Partners in the Bay Area.

Where: The Historic Fox Theatre in Redwood City, 2215 Broadway, Redwood City, CA 94063

When: April 21, 2016, 6:30 – 9:30 pm

Reading Partners Annual Celebrity Spelling Bee is a unique event that raises funds and awareness for the 2,900 elementary school students we serve across the Bay Area. Spelling Bee guests enjoy a cocktail hour followed by an on-stage spelling competition between six teams — each composed of a local celebrity, a corporate sponsor, and a Reading Partners volunteer. Teams compete in a fun-filled night of spelling (and misspelling!) to promote the importance of literacy for students in under-resourced communities.

Learn more about the bee and purchase tickets.
