Second annual Spellebrate Raises Funds for Volunteering

Our second annual Spellebrate Lorain County: A Night At The Bee fundraiser was held on Thursday, June 22, 2017.

A great crowd turned out to watch 23 teams compete against each other in a fun and informal spelling bee. "The Bee-Utiful Ladies of Oberlin Rotary" took home the championship trophy and the $1,000 grand prize. The evening was presented by Queen Bee sponsor Nordson Corporation and included a silent auction and sideboard raffles in addition to the game's Honey Pot raffle.

In all, the teams, sponsors and spectators contributed a net profit of over $11,000 to support our Lorain County Volunteer Connection initiative with HandsOn Northeast Ohio.

Lorain County Volunteer Connection offers an easy and accessible way to volunteer at projects throughout the county. Learn more on volunteering and other ways to get involved here
