It’s time to get ready for ONE TO ONE’s Corporate Spelling Bee! This adult spelling challenge brings together Vancouver professionals for some friendly early-morning competition, all in the name of supporting children’s literacy. Funds raised from the Spelling Bee help keep our high-impact program free for schools and families, and allow us to reach more struggling young readers who need us.
Last year’s fierce spelling teams helped us raise over $64,000 to support children’s literacy across British Columbia. This year, let’s see if we can raise even more to get children’s confidence soaring when they have a book in their hand. Who will take the crown from The Spielers, last year’s winning team from the Glen Group, BMO Nesbitt Burns?
We’re delighted to announce that puzzle master Jonathan Berkowitz will be joining us once again and radio broadcaster, comedian and filmmaker, Tetsuro Shigematsu, will be our brand new MC!
Whether you’re in it for the breakfast or the bragging rights, attending the Bee helps deliver the gift of literacy to struggling young readers in your community―which is even more exciting than scoring the (highly coveted) winner’s trophy, in our opinion.
