Words & Friends for Literacy Fundraiser

What is Words & Friends for Literacy? 

Words & Friends for Literacy (formerly known as Unscrabble) is the Portage County Literacy Council’s annual fundraising event at which teams of up to four players play collective Scrabble. During three timed rounds, teams work together to play as many words as possible on their Scrabble board. The bigger the word score, the better! Team scores are added up after each round and the teams with the most total points are crowned the champions.  A catered meal and great door prizes are provided and a cash bar is available. Teams also raise funds online and in-person before the event to help provide adult literacy services in Portage County.

Thursday, April 25, 2019 – Play starts at 6:00pm (check in starts at 5:30pm)

Why Words & Friends for Literacy? 

We are the only community-based literacy program for adults in Portage County, and proceeds from this event are essential to the services we provide our learners. The team fee is $100 for four players ($25 per person), and teams are encouraged to raise additional donations. Prizes will be awarded to the team that raises the most funds!
