Join us at the 22nd Annual Great Grown-Up Spelling Bee! This event, chaired by Nicole and Evan H. Katz, will feature a catered dinner and adult spelling bee, where teams of 2 will have the opportunity to compete to be this year's Spelling Bee champions. At the event, we will honor H-E-B, whose continued support of literacy has made a positive impact on the lives of so many Houstonians. Please join us for this festive evening by purchasing an individual ticket or a table (starting at $5,000). With every table purchase comes the opportunity to field a spelling bee team of two participants. Proceeds from the event will benefit HCL and our work on behalf of literacy providers in Houston. We hope you will bee there!
