Spellebration

Thursday, June 4, 2020
7:00 PM

Spellebration, the Literacy Center's signature fundraising event, will be held online on Thursday, June 4, 2020. Join us at 7 pm from the comfort of your living room to celebrate the community’s efforts to bring about a just and vibrant West Michigan through the power of literacy.

The event will be live-streamed on Facebook. If you're unable to attend, but want to support our mission, please visit https://secure.qgiv.com/for/Spellebration/.

We look forward to celebrating our three honorees (Mark Peters, Tommy Allen, Marielle Levert) when we can gather again in person at our Spellebration 2021 event. 

A special thanks to all of our sponsors for continuing their critical support during this challenging time.
