Fairport Area Community Education Trust will host its annual fundraiser the Community Spelling Bee from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Feb. 10 at Johanna Perrin Middle School Cafetorium, 95 Potter Place, Fairport.
The free event will feature Fairport High School teacher Dylan Gillett as wordsmith and will include three-member adult teams from area businesses, community organizations, neighborhood groups and educators competing in a collaborative spelling bee format.
Light refreshments and entry into a 50/50 raffle will be available for purchase throughout the event, all proceeds to benefit enhanced education opportunities for students in Fairport.
Participants are wanted. Anyone interested in engaging in local, public education and making a difference for students is encouraged to either field their own three-member team or sponsor a school-based team. The event provides an opportunity for the business and education sectors to network and serves as a great team-building event for organizations. Registrants may direct their sponsor fee to support either the Teacher Grant Fund, the arts or science, technology, engineering and math initiatives, allowing FACET to impact these vital areas throughout the academic year.
For sponsorship forms: fairportfacet.org; 585-259-9027. The registration deadline is Feb. 1.
