Show off your spelling skills AND make a difference in the lives of people affected by

mental, social and emotional health or substance use issues.

or just sit back and observe.  There is no limit to the number of spellers on a team. 

The Bee is $30 per person, and includes a buffet dinner, soft drinks, and dessert

AND a lively night of friendly competition!  Beer and wine will be available at a cash bar.
