Play Scrabble for Campbell River literacy programs

Both advanced and recreational players will enjoy three rounds of Scrabble

The Campbell River Literacy Association is hosting a Scrabble Fundraiser Saturday, May 4.

The Campbell River Literacy Association has hosted three previous fundraisers but they want this one to be the biggest of all!

“Everyone loves to play scrabble and beat their friends, now they will have the chance to raise money for a good cause,” says Julina Spetch, CR Literacy Association ESL Coordinator

Both advanced and recreational players will enjoy three rounds of Scrabble. Players will be matched up with others of similar ability as much as possible. Beverages and snacks are provided for Scrabble players. Local businesses are generously supporting the event with the donation of prizes and food. Prizes will be awarded for areas such as top scores, lowest score, player bringing in the highest total in donations, and more.

The Campbell River Literacy Association is fundraising in support of their literacy programs in Campbell River. For over 13 years the Campbell River Literacy Association has been working hard to provide free programming such as Adult Literacy tutoring, Youth and Adult English as a Second Language tutoring, Computer literacy programming and an English Conversation class. They train volunteer tutors, who work one-on-one or in small groups. If you know someone who could benefit from improving their literacy skills contact the Campbell River Literacy Association at 250-923-1275 for more information go to www.literacyforall.ca

The fundraiser will run from 1-4 p.m. in the Robron Centre’s library, 740 Robron Road. Pre-registration is required. Registration packages may be picked up at the Robron Centre room number #A121A or Coho Books April 9. Completed registrations may be dropped off at the same locations.

More than 92 volunteer tutors work with the Literacy Association to provide one-on-one and small group tutoring for people working to improve their literacy skills.
