What's the Buzz all About?

It’s about a different kind of fundraiser to benefit the Child Abuse Prevention Association of Beaufort County – an adult spelling bee. The spelling bee will take place the evening of Friday, January 25, 2008, at the Hilton Head Beach and Tennis Resort, starting at 6:30 p.m. The event is an adult (teams of 4) spelling competition. Each team pays an entry fee of $175.00, which includes refreshments and two drinks. Teams can then purchase word passes (mulligans) at six passes for $100.00. Each pass purchased will give a team four entries into a drawing for prizes. Prizes will also be given for the most creative team and the best costume. Spectators can come to cheer their team on for admission of $10.00. Food and beverages can be purchased at the bee. Words will be selected from the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary and the 3rd New International Dictionary of the English Language (unabridged). All proceeds from the event go to benefit CAPA.
