Spelling Bee to Benefit Scarsdale Library
Scarsdale residents are buzzing with excitement about the return of the ever-popular Spelling Bee, hosted by the Friends of the Scarsdale Library. This community event hits the sweet spot for family fun and will be the Friends’ primary fundraiser for 2024, supporting the hive of activity that we all know as the Scarsdale Public Library.
Spectators of all ages will gather at the Scarsdale High School auditorium on Friday, March 1, at 7:30pm, for a night of stellar spelling and trivia, featuring 2006 SHS alumnus Josh Milstein as emcee—or should we say em-Bee. Mayor Justin Arest, Library Director Beth Bermel, and NYS Assemblywoman Amy Paulin will serve as judges. Audience admission is $20 for adults, and $10 for anyone under 18 years old.
Fifteen teams of three adults each will compete in multiple swarms, and there will also be a separate set of teen rounds. Winners will receive prizes, bragging rights, and more! Get your teams together—this event fills up quickly! Team registration is $180 for adults; $75 for high-schoolers, and Spelling Bee tee shirts and water bottles will be provided. Be sure to avoid the sting of disappointment: Sign up before the February 12 deadline!
