AR Kids Read Celebrity Spelling Bee

Thank you to everyone who supported Spellebration 2022.

 You invested in early literacy for hundreds of our (AR) kids, and together we raised $70,000!

Spellebration is our annual adult spelling bee raising fund to support grade-level reading.

This year’s event will be held on Thursday, April 7, 2022, from 6-8:30 pm at the Albert Pike Masonic Center.
Guests will enjoy heavy hors d’ouevres, beverages, silent auction, and a “celebrity” spelling bee experience.

*Attire is business casual.
