On Saturday, March 28, GHCC’s Adult Literacy & ESOL Program hosted its Eighth Annual Scrabble Fundraiser for Literacy. A record number of players raised over $5700 for the program through registration fees, a raffle, and a silent auction.
March Madness games weren’t the only ones bringing people together this month. For the Literacy Program, March was quite the month for board games.
For the Literacy staff, spring brings flowers, showers, and Scrabble! On March 28, nearly 115 social and competitive Scrabble players braved the rainy weather for an evening of great fun and gamesmanship at the Eighth Annual Scrabble Fundraiser for Literacy, making this year’s event the most successful to date. Thanks to the wonderful assistance of the Literacy Advisory Board, we were able to obtain some amazing donations for player prizes and a silent auction (the first for this event) from several local businesses. Given the economic recession, the generosity in support of this year’s event was the most meaningful success of all.
