Centralia Rotary is looking for local businesses, organizations, and community members to participate in its seventh annual “Catch the Buzz” Spelling Bee.
The event, which includes a silent auction and dessert auction, is set for 5:30 p.m., Feb. 21, at Corbett Theater, at Centralia College.
Participation in the adult spelling bee competition requires a tax-deductible entry fee of $350 per four-member team. The winning team will receive a grand prize as well as prizes for Best Team Spirit and Best Team Costume.
Businesses, organizations, and community members lacking spellers can underwrite a group of spellers looking for a sponsor.
Those who don’t want to spell or fund a team will have opportunities to support Centralia College by attending the Spelling Bee as a spectator for $10, which includes appetizers or donating to the silent auction. No host beer and wine available by Heymann Winery.
“Catch the Buzz” Spelling Bee is a fundraiser for The Fox Theatre Restoration.
Information and entry forms are available from Centralia Rotary. Interested persons should call Julie Shaffley at 736-3830, or Lynn Ford at 269-8837.
