a spelling bee for cheaters
The more you raise, the more you can cheat.
Welcome to the 5th annual Spelling Bee for Cheaters, and we want you to join the hive!
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!
When: October 4, 2018, 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.
You can lead a team!
If you want to lead a team, find 3-5 busy bees to join your hive, fundraise and spell like they’ve never spelled before. Or cheat like they’ve never cheated before. Whatever floats your boat.
