When is the last time you played SCRABBLE® and formed a conga line or entered a costume contest for additional points or extra tiles? Chances are never, unless youve attended Literacy Advance of Houston’s ‘SCRABBLE in the City’ event in previous years. This fun, boisterous, fundraising game night will take place this year on Thursday, May 28, from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at Saint Arnold Brewing Company, 2000 Lyons Avenue, Houston, 77020. Competitive grown-ups will enjoy zany SCRABBLE, complete with game changers and special challenges, hearty dinner bites, Saint Arnolds famous brew and raffle drawings. The top prize: Mr. T the coveted SCRABBLE in the City Trophy and a years worth of bragging rights.
The most linguistically creative night of the year benefits Literacy Advance, the citys oldest and largest volunteer-based literacy provider. In 2014, Literacy Advance volunteers provided free adult and family literacy services to more than 3,200 adults and families. The non-profit organization, now in its 51st year, relies on sponsorships and donations to provide free literacy education throughout Houston.
SCRABBLE in the City takes the game to the next level! With prizes, costume contests, and score enhancers and plenty of food, drinks, and live music its sure to be a night to remember. Most importantly, this night will benefit low literacy adults throughout the city with free literacy classes, so they can create a better life for themselves and their families, said Joe Wappelhorst, executive director of Literacy Advance.
