Spelling on Stage For Single Parents

Kids aren't the only ones who compete in spelling bees. Adults can enter the Community Spelling Bee on May 24 at Champlain College. The event is a fundraiser for the school's Single Parents Program, which has helped more than 600 single-parent students access workshops, scholarships and resources since its inception in 1987. Each team of three spellers from corporate sponsors donates $325 to the program. The bee is organized by Burlington's chapter of the Zonta Club — a worldwide service organization working to improve the status of women through service and advocacy. Over the past 20 years, the local chapter has raised more than $110,000 for the effort. That's a lot of C-A-S-H.

The Community Spelling Bee will take place at Champlain College's Alumni Auditorium on Wednesday, May 24, at 7 p.m. It is open to the public. Learn more about Champlain College's Single Parent Program at champlain.edu/student-life/student-services/single-parents-program.
