Create a b-u-z-z at the 7th annual GEEF Adult Spelling Bee!



Are you a grammar geek and spelling freak? Then have we got a fun evening for you!


Mark your calendar for 6:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22 for the seventh annual adult spelling bee, a fun evening of competition, dinner and silent auction. And, as a fund-raiser for the Greenville Educational Enrichment Foundation, it's for a honey of a cause! The event will be held at Innovation First International, 6725 W. FM 1570, Greenville, TX 75402.


"Bee Innovative is this year's theme, and we're thrilled to be partnering with Innovation First International," said Spelling Bee Chair and GEEF Treasurer Penni Perkins. "They are hosting the event and have been such generous supporters of GEEF and the school district for many years."


Each team has three members, so grab two buddies and go for the W-I-N. The deadline to sign up a team is Feb. 13. Or just buy a ticket (also available at the door) and join in the fun.
