The Literacy Center of West Michigan’s signature event, Spellebration, will be held on May 11, 2017 at the Grand Rapids Masonic Center. Now in its 24th year, the evening event draws more than 350 guests to celebrate the community’s efforts to bring about a just and vibrant West Michigan through the power of literacy.

Our 2017 event honors Rick and Loy Adamy with the Champion of Literacy Award, Christina Arnold with the Ledy Award for Community Engagement sponsored by Grand Rapids Community College, and Denise Joseph with the Marshall Pitler Volunteer of the Year Award.

A special thanks to Long Road Distillers for providing the hosted bar for this year’s event.
