The Portage County Literacy Council’s annual fundraiser will be held on Thursday, April 27 at 6:00 PM at Memories Banquet Hall, 2811 Plover Springs Drive, Plover, Wis. Community members, students, businesses, and other organizations are invited to sign up their teams now. No experience necessary!

Words & Friends for Literacy is a high-energy and fun event. Teams of four participants play a collaborative game of Scrabble®. The teams pool their letters to make as many words as possible during three timed rounds. The team with the highest score is declared the winner. Teams raise at least $100 for adult literacy programs, and enjoy a fun night out, catered meal, and door prizes. A 50/50 raffle and cash bar are also available. Teams are encouraged to register now by calling 715-345-5341 or signing up online at
