Montgomery College will face Holy Cross Health, Adventist HealthCare, Burness Communications, Social & Scientific Systems, Inc. and PEPCO in this the second annual spelling bee fundraiser, benefiting Montgomery Coalition for Adult English Literacy.

"This fundraiser helps to close the literacy gap in Montgomery County. The County has over 80,000 adults who lack basic English literacy skills, while 12,000 students have parents who lack basic literacy needs, and over 130,000 are limited in their ability to communicate in English. Hundreds of residents are on waiting lists to take English literacy classes," MCAEL Executive Director, Kathy Stevens, said.

The Spelling Bee takes place Thursday, March 5th from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the Montgomery College Cultural Arts Center at 7995 Georgia Ave, Silver Spring, MD. Tickets can be purchased here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/mcaels-2nd-annual-grown-up-spelling-bee-to-support-literacy-tickets-13965652643
