    7TH ANNUAL EEF SPELLING BEE (PDF FLYER)


    One notable Tucsonan in the Educational Enrichment Foundation’s 7th Annual Celebrity Spelling Bee lineup will emerge victorious, and teachers across Tucson Unified School District will win big. The Emcee for the evening will keep rivalries in check as proceeds from the event benefit classroom grants from EEF to teachers for classroom supplies, school projects, and desperately needed equipment.  This year’s proceeds will also benefit EEF’s Interscholastic Scholarship program which pays fees allowing TUSD students to participate in Fine and Performing Arts, Sports, and Academic Clubs.
    Competition has already heated up between the spellers who have plans to use social media to leverage their chances at the microphone. 

    Follow the spellers on social media to join in on the pre-Bee antics. EEF’s Celebrity Spelling Bee begins at 7 p.m. on April 13, 2019 at The Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress. 

    Tickets are available at The Rialto Theater for $25 for adults and $5 for children.  

    Attendees are invited to the after party Spellabration at Club Congress immediately following the Bee.
