Annual Events

Date: Thursday, Mar 18, 2021 Time: 6:45-7:45 pm

This year's Spellebration event may be virtual, but it's anything but average.

This year's virtual Spellebration will be fast-paced, mission-forward, and festive. We'll raise a glass in recognition of this year's honorees, play a virtual game of Scrabble, and celebrate the community's efforts to bring about a just and vibrant West Michigan through the power of literacy. 

All of the funds raised from Spellebration 2021 keep our literacy programming-- both virtual and in-person-- free for the 700+ adult learners we instruct each year. 

Make plans to join us live on Facebook and YouTube on Thursday, March 18, 2021. 

6:45 PM Virtual Cocktail Hour
7:00 PM Program and Awards

Virtual tickets mean very real treats. 

While everyone can watch the live event, a virtual ticket turns Spellebration into a real celebration.  

Virtual tickets are available for $110 (or $75 for current tutors). Each ticket comes with a gift bag of wine/beer, snacks, and a set of tiles to play the Scrabble game during our live event. 

Raise a glass for this year's honorees. 

  • Mark Peters, President and CEO of Butterball Farms, Inc., with the Champion of Literacy Award sponsored by J.C. and Tammy Huizenga
  • Tommy Allen, Publisher of Rapid Growth Media and Social Practice Artist, with the Ledy Award for Community Engagement
  • Marielle Levert, Literacy Center tutor, with the Volunteer of the Year award
