Spring Fundraiser, another success!
Foundation 51 held its annual Community Adult Spelling Bee on March 10th. Teams of community members, parents, and teachers assembled to try their hands at spelling words such as “corollary,” “evanescent,” “camaraderie,” and many more. As the number of teams was whittled down, the words became more challenging. With this year’s new “By Back In” pass, teams were able to donate a small fee and remain in the competition after misspelling a word, which kept the Bee all abuzz!
When the final word was called and judged, a winner was crowned. The team consisting of Jen Tyll, Michelle Zimmerman, and Kevin O’Sullivan, reigned champion of the Bee!
Thank you to all who attended and supported Foundation 51 at this event. We hope to see you all again next spring!
We are grateful for our generous sponsors, donors, and attendees who made this special night such a success. The funds raised at this event allow us to continue our mission to enrich the educational experience of students in our community.
