On Wednesday, September 23, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. (doors at 6 p.m.), head to Webster Columbus Center (70 Barrett Drive, Village of Webster) for a spelling bee that is and isn't for the children. While the Bee for Books Spelling Bee event is geared toward adults, it's a fundraiser to support the Webster Library, which is for everyone.
The team-based spelling bee will be emceed by Carmen Gumina, superintendent of the Webster Central School District. Though the team registration period has passed, audience participation at intermission is encouraged, and the event will also feature raffles and a 50-50 drawing. Advance tickets are available at Webster Library (980 Ridge Road, Webster) and Hegedorn's (964 Ridge Road, Webster) for $8 ($4 for students and seniors) or $10 at the door ($5 for students and seniors). For more information, call 872-6090 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
