The 5th Annual Scrabble Scramble Tournament is a ‘fantabulous’ evening of quality live entertainment, auctions, friendly competition with prizes and delicious fare! Scrabble enthusiasts between the ages of 13 and 90+ are encouraged to register to play. This family-oriented event is a major annual fundraiser for the non-profit Rising TIDE at Marguerite Kiefer Education Center, a successful year-round, after school, drop-in program. So when you participate, your tax-deductible donations help provide academic support, mentoring, cultural enrichment, arts, sports, recreation and nutrition for several hundred inner city children and youth.

The event takes place Friday, September 20, at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 607 E. Third Street, Long Beach. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for a Silent Auction and Dessert Bar. “Crow’s Feet” are in concert from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m. Enjoy yummy refreshments, bid on exciting auction items and hear some sensational music. Scrabble games begin at 7:30 p.m. Prizes will be awarded to the winning individual and the winning team. Free childcare will be provided!

Registration donation is just $25 per person. Advanced registration is encouraged. For further details, please contact Jo Sutton at (562) 424-3035 or ksutton@usc.edu. Please make checks out to “MKEC.” The National Scrabble Association does not sanction the Scrabble Scramble Tournament.
