Scrabble® Fundraising Tournament 2017Posted: January 1st
Since the event started over 18 years ago has raised over $150,000. This money is raised through sponsorships, 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.

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.
We have prizes for players and donors alike composed of donations from various sponsors, which will be revealed at the event.
Remember that every contribution counts. Even a donation of one dollar is an investment for our community. We hope that we can count on your support.
