Scrabble® Fundraising Tournament 2016
The 2016 Scrabble® Fundraising Tournament was quite a success! It was held February 27th, 2016 at the Intercity Shopping Centre Promotions Court. This year, we were very fortunate to raise over $11,000. All funds raised from our Scrabble® tournament support the Thunder Bay Literacy Group’s Adult Learning Centre and allow us to continue to provide free literacy, numeracy and computer classes for adults in Thunder Bay.
We'd like to thank everyone who played, pledged, and/or made a donation, you have made a real difference in our community. We'd also like to thank all of our sponsors for their generosity and support.
About the Event
Since the event started over 17 years ago, this event has been growing every year and to day, has raised over $140,000. This money is raised through sponsorship, donations and the tournament itself.
But it's not all about the money, this event also raises awareness about the adult literacy issues in our community.
Where does the money raised go?
The work we do is so important. We provide programs to help adults achieve their goals. These goals can be anything from being able to read a book to their child to being able to manage their personal finances.
Money raised through events like this and through donations help ensure that we are able to provide these life changing services free of charge to people in the community.
How Can I Help?
We welcome any support the community is willing to give.
Become a Sponsor
As always, we'd like to thank all of our sponsors for the support. Without their generosity, we would be unable to run events like this so we encourage everyone to support them as they have supported us.
Financial sponsorship is always welcome but we also love when local businesses step up and offer goods & volunteers. This year for example prize baskets were provided by Intercity Shopping Centre & The Prospector Steakhouse and coffee was donated by Tim Hortons.Contact Us To Become A Sponsor
