The Scrabble Scramble Tournament is an evening of friendly competition and fun-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 400 inner city children and youth.

The Tournament will be held Friday, October 5, at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 607 E. Third Street, Long Beach. Doors open for a Silent Auction and Dessert Bar at 6:00 p.m. You’ll have time to enjoy yummy refreshments for a monetary donation and bid on exciting auction items. The scrabble proceedings are introduced at 7:00 p.m. and the games begin at 7:30 p.m. Scrabble players may sign up as a team of 3 or as a single payer. The Scrabble Scramble Tournament is not sanctioned by the National Scrabble Association. Prizes will be awarded for the winning individual and the winning team, and childcare will be provided!

The registration donation is just $25 per person, for desert bar and/or scrabble play. Registration is encouraged in advance. For further details, please contact Jo Sutton at (562) 424-3035 or ksutton@usc.edu. Please make checks out to “MKEC”.
