APRIL 30 is SCRABBLE DAY in New Haven
People of all ages love to play Scrabble. It’s good, literate fun, it’s social and it’s surprisingly competitive. We know, because Literacy Volunteers has hosted an annual Scrabble Challenge fundraiser in New Haven for the past 15 years. Hundreds of players have competed for bragging rights while raising money to support the efforts of Literacy Volunteer tutors in the community. This year we are proud to announce that morning anchor Chris Velardi, of WTNH News 8 is hosting the event.
Join the fun on Wednesday, April 30 at the Wilbur Cross High School Cafeteria, 181 Mitchell Drive, New Haven from 5:30 to 8:00 pm.  Go to www.lvagnh.org to register your team. Four people play together as a team at each table. The cost is just $50/person or $200/table. That includes dinner, a raffle and two rounds of Team Scrabble, one with an opponent and one without. Everyone is a winner and the Grand Prize goes to the Team that collects the most Pledge dollars.
Several Literacy Volunteers students will speak about their experiences learning to read and speak English. Join us and take the opportunity to become part of the solution to the adult literacy crisis. You’ll love it!
 
 
30% of adults in New Haven read at the lowest level of literacy. They can’t read well
enough to fill out job applications or help their children with homework. Literacy
Volunteers is the non-profit agency that provides FREE tutoring for adults who need
help learning to read and speak English. Together we can solve the adult literacy crisis.
