Literacy KC's 23rd annual Spelling Bee is just around the bend!

Here's how the Bee works... Individuals and corporations sponsor a three-member team. Each team gets one chance per round to spell a word correctly.

... but that's not all! You don't have to have a team to have fun! Bring your friends to enjoy a night of fun spelling competition, good food, signature drinks, and a fantastic Live & Silent Auction that you don't want to miss.

Why should I come to the Bee? Bee-cause it's FUN! And because your participation directly benefits the teens and adults who rely on our programs to change their lives through literacy.

How do I join? Spelling Team sponsorships start at $3,000 - limited spots available!

No team? No worries! We have a variety of corporate and individual sponsor packages, as well as tickets for just $85 each! Register at

Doors open at 5:30, with the main event beginning at 6:30!
