The summer heat may be continuing, but Wellesley Education Foundation (WEF) is looking forward to fall, and holding its 28th Annual Wellesley Spelling Bee — an adult spelling contest — on Thursday, November 2, at 7 p.m. at the Sprague Elementary School gym.
Last year, 56 teams drawn from local businesses, community groups, PTOs, colleges and the Wellesley Public Schools took the stage to show their spelling prowess.
Members of the community are invited to form their own three-person teams and enter by October 19. The cost for entry is $500.
The Bee is a key annual fundraiser for WEF, building the dollars needed to support innovation and enrichment in the Wellesley Public Schools. Donations of any amount are welcome. Sponsorship is a great way to showcase a business or individual support in the local community. Sponsorships start at $125; teams may be sponsored for $625.
To register, sponsor, or donate, visit www.WellesleyEducationFoundation.org and look for the Spelling Bee under the “Events” tab. Online payment is available through PayPal, or mail a check payable to WEF with “Spelling Bee” noted to: Wellesley Education Foundation, PO Box 812321, Wellesley, MA 02482.
