Words & Friends for Literacy Fundraiser

***The next Words & Friends for Literacy will be April 26, 2018!!!***

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.

Thursday, April 27, 2017 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 from their friends, families, book clubs, and others. Prizes will be awarded to the team that raises the most funds.
