Grate Groan-Up Spelling Bee a Success

Last night, Georgina Public Libraries hosted our second annual Grate Groan-Up Spelling Bee. 12 teams of 3 adults spelled their way to the top. Congratulations goes to the first place spellers from Jericho Youth Services!
The event raised $13,500 which will be used by the Library and the Festival of Stories to promote family literacy in Georgina.
BreakfastTelevision producer Kevin Forget emceed while Mayor Rob Grossi "MisPronounced" err... pronounced the word list. MP Julia Munro, Advocate editor John Slykhuis and Chamber president Dan Fellini judged.
Thank you to our sponsors, CIBC, all the contestants, and a very lively crowd of "cheerleader bees". Hope to see you at the third annual Grate Groan-Up Spelling Bee!
