“The staff of the children’s room … we pretty much have no shame,” Cole said. “We’ll ham it up as much as we can.”
The night will be split into two parts – a family spelling bee from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. followed by adults-only teams from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. Pizza and soda will also be sold from 6 to 6:30 p.m. All of the money from the spelling bee and the food will go toward replacing the chairs. Attending the event is free and open to the public.
There will also be a few raffles throughout the night, including one for a brand new 32gb iPad 2 with a cover. Tickets for the iPad are on sale before and during the event, $1 for each or $5 for 10.
“It’s going to be fun,” DeLaughter said. “People shouldn’t hesitate to come if they think they’re not good spellers because we’ll make it fun.”
