This event, a combination of Jeopardy and a spelling bee, raised money for this wonderful organization.

They believe that literacy is the foundation of education, opportunity, and social and civic participation.The Foundation was thrilled to have a JeopardBee team comprised of board member Steve Bass, and employees Debrielle Williams and Traci Petty.
