Fundraiser. F-U-N-D-R-A-I-S-E-R. Fundraiser. Complete.
In an announcement that probably surprises no one, I was really into spelling bees as a kid. It was right up there with sitting at the front of the class and turning in all my homework on time. Yeah, I was that kid.
And, you guys, my time has come again. Midtown Rotary — a fairly new Rotary club group full of young, downtown types — is hosting its first fundraiser this Thursday, a spelling bee. Or, make that spelling bee(r).
The event kicks off at 7 p.m. at IAO Gallery and includes a beer tasting from Coop Ale Works, food from Iguana Mexican Grill and, of course, a real, live spelling bee. I’ve already been practicing.
The grand prize for the bee is $500. Tickets to the event are $20 per person and are available online. Tickets are limited, so get yours soon.
