Literacy New York Buffalo-Niagara (LNYBN) will kick off Scrabble®Fest 2015 with a special event on Wednesday, January 14th, 2015 from 5pm to 7pm at The Filling Station at Larkin Square, 745 Seneca Street, Buffalo.

For the tenth year, LNYBN is holding Scrabble®Fest, an annual initiative that promotes having fun through gaming and raises awareness and funds to fight illiteracy in our region.

This kickoff event is the first of many Scrabble®Fest parties to be held in Erie and Niagara Counties.

All are welcome to attend. Guests are being asked to make a $20 donation which will go directly toward literacy programming in the Buffalo-Niagara region.

A winner from each event will be invited to compete in the Scrabble®Fest Finals at the Buffalo Central Library on Thursday, March 26th from5:30-7:30 pm, where the Western New York Scrabble Champion will be crowned.

Word by word, we can change lives.
