EEF's 6th Annual Celebrity Spelling Bee

Friday, August 25, 2017


This classic event raises money to fund classroom grants for teachers in the Tucson Unified School District.  Attendees are SPELLBOUND as they cheer on their favorite spellers --   the twist is that the spellers are adults and the judges are kids. Come have a beer or glass of wine and settle in for an evening of fun that supports public education!
