I’ve mentioned numerous times that my favorite non-profit in Los Angeles is 826LA. They do great work there, but as I’ve discussed it previously, I’ll let you research all the good stuff they do on your own. Suffice to say, I think you should support them and get involved with helping, too.
Toward that end, I’d like to tell you about your opportunity to support, get involved, and have a good deal of fun while you’re doing it. Get in on the action at A Spelling Bee For Cheaters.
For participants, A Spelling Bee For Cheaters is exactly what it purports to be. Teams raise money for 826LA. The more they raise, the more “cheats” they can earn for use in the bee. If you’re looking for a lower level of involvement, you can donate to a team that has already been established and purchase a spectator ticket to see the bee live. This year’s featured cheaters will include (among others): Dave Eggers, Spike Jonze, Jimmy Kimmel, Laraine Newman, and Dianna Agron.
What: 826LA’s A Spelling Bee For Cheaters.
When: Saturday, August 14, 2010. 2:00pm.
Where: Lincoln Middle School, 1501 California Ave., Santa Monica.
Why: It’s a ton of fun, and supports a great cause.
If you’re a word nerd (like me,) a good cheater (like me,) or just looking for a fun, unusual way to spend your Saturday afternoon (like me,) get your tickets now for 826LA’s A Spelling Bee For Cheaters.
