Presented by

with Supporting Sponsor

On Thursday, June 6th, 2024, 7am-9am, Project Literacy hosted our 5th Annual Adult Team Spelling Bee Fundraiser at the Coast Capri Hotel at 1171 Harvey Avenue in Kelowna!

Can you spell V-I-C-T-O-R-Y?!

This event was proudly sponsored by Pushor Mitchell LLP and Source Office Furniture with all funds raised going towards supporting Project Literacy programs for children and adults within the Central Okanagan. The Team Spelling Bee included coffee, tea, fruit juice and a heart-smart buffet breakfast. The words were tough but the competition was is even tougher with a whopping TWELVE teams in play. Teams of eight adults competed for the Spelling Bee Trophy. The newest winner of the Spelling Bee Trophy are also joining us for the their first year: Okanagan College’s ‘Word Wrights’!

We also introduced The Spirit Award for the most spirited and creative team — costumes, chants, anything you can think of that embodies team spirit. The winner of delicious honey from Planet Bee Honey Farm and a Karat created honey milk chocolate bar from Arlo’s Honey Farm Inc. for this year, was Kelowna Sunrise Rotary Club’s team: ‘Here Comes the Sun!

Thank you to our media sponsor Bell Media Radio Group: 99.9 Virgin Radio, Move Radio and AM1150, to our dedicated volunteers for contributing their time. Of course, a huge thank you to Pushor Mitchell LLP for joining us, yet again, as our official Event Sponsor and to Source Office Furniture for coming on, this year, as Supporting Sponsor!

Come back in 2025 and register your team and join in the fun! You never know, YOU could “bee” the next winner!
