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-- available at no cost for the 700+ adult learners we instruct each year. To donate, text Spellebration2021 to 50155 or visit our secure donation site.
Make plans to join us live on Facebook and YouTube on Thursday, March 18, 2021.
