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.
