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.
