In this age of computer technology it is not often that adults are asked to test their spelling skills, however, that is why the Great Shehan Spelling Bee exists.
A competition for companies, the bee is an opportunity for employers to treat their employees to an evening of cocktails, dinner, competition and camaraderie while helping to raise funds for the Cardinal Shehan Center’s After School and Saturday Program.
Companies can choose to enter a team of three spellers in the event for $600, plus $50 per person for cheerleaders. Prizes are awarded for first, second and third place and lunch delivered to the office for the best cheerleaders.
The 2013 Spelling Bee will be held at the Bridgeport Holiday Inn on Tuesday, Feb. 26, beginning at 5:30 p.m. For more information on registering or becoming a sponsor for this event, call 203-336-4468.
