The Fourth Annual Spellebrate Lorain County Raises Funds for Education Initiatives

The fourth annual Spellebrate Lorain County: A Night At The Bee, took place at the Emerald Event Center on Thursday, June 20th and the evening was presented by Queen Bee title sponsor Northwest Bank. 18 teams competed against each other in a spelling bee where you don't have to be a good speller to have a great time, all for a chance to win a $1,000 grand prize. The night also featured a silent auction, sideboard raffles and a "Honey Pot" 50/50 raffle for spectators.

The championship trophy went to “Wordly Wise” from Kendal at Oberlin, their second win in four years. The fundraiser was able to raise nearly $14,000 to support our Education Inititatives, here in lorain county.

United Way of Greater Lorain County is focused on kindergarten readiness and youth success. Learn more about our education initiatives and our other Community Collaboratives here.
