Campbell River Literacy Scrabble scramble on Saturday

The Campbell River Literacy Association is hosting a fundraising Scrabble Tournament Saturday.

The Campbell River Literacy Association has hosted two previous tournaments 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, early bird prize and more.

The Campbell River Literacy Association is fundraising in support of their literacy programs in Campbell River.

For over 12 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 a English Conversational 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 tournament 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. Completed registrations may be dropped off at the same locations.

Players who are able are asked to bring a Scrabble game with them.
