Family Tree Clinic

a spelling bee for cheaters

Registration is now OPEN!

The 6th annual Spelling Bee for Cheaters is on, and we want you to join the hive!

You’ve heard of walk-a-thons and bowl-a-thons, but we like to do things a little differently. 

It’s team-based spelling, which means you work as a team to earn points for the title of Ultimate Spellers. And the more your team fundraises, the more you can cheat.

Teams will be able to “buy” cheats at the event with the money raised prior. Cheats include letter hints or buying the word for full points. We have some other tricks under our wings that won’t be revealed until the event. But we promise it’ll be a night filled with controlled chaos and hilarity!

Delightful Details

When: October 3, 2019, doors at 6pm and all hive spelling promptly at 6:30pm
Where: Amsterdam Bar & Hall in downtown St. Paul
Why: To support Family Tree Clinic’s groundbreaking programming and have a really good time doing it

Everyone is welcome to attend even if not on a team. Heck, some teams are bringing their own fan clubs.
