New for 2020, the event will have a silent auction, with a beach rental house in Atlantic City and golf for four at Stonewall Golf Club among the items up for bid.

Proceeds from the event benefit BEACON for Adult Literacy, which provides ESOL English classes, U.S. Citizenship exam preparation, and job readiness skills training for 400+ low-income adult immigrants in our community each year.

“Imagine family game night times 10 (minus the bickering). That’s Scrabble® Scramble!” joked Jamie Shultz, BEACON’s Board chair, who has been involved with BEACON, a ministry of the Benedictine Sisters of Virginia, for more than four years.

“But I also hope participants come away with an understanding of the work BEACON does in the community and the successes of the program. BEACON’S work transcends political party lines, classes, religious beliefs and other divisive categorizations of people. We offer our adult students an opportunity to communicate with one another which is, in my opinion, the first and most essential step in bringing communities together.”

Scrabble® Scramble Title Sponsor is Quaker Custom Homes (https://www.qchllc.com/). For sponsorship opportunities, contact Steffany Chaplin at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or 571-428-2504.
