Change Box Challenge Winner Revealed

Something new was added to the 17th Annual ScrabbleBee that was held April 19, 2018: the Change Box Challenge.

Each of the 39 teams had a change box on their table for team members to put their change in (and dollars too).  The change box that had the most money at the end of the night won FREE Tile Buy Back for the 2019 Event…and the winner was Sacred Heart Hospital. Congratulations! This tile buy back is a $150.00 value as teams in the Hare Division may buy back tiles that are removed in the second and third round of play at $5 each. The total raised by Sacred Heart was $110.87.

The success of the Change Box Challenge helped Literacy Chippewa Valley raise more money than we did last year (over $40,000), so thank you to everyone who participated.

In case you didn’t hear, the winner in the Hare Division, for the third year in a row, was CVTC. Second place was Sacred Heart Hospital, and third place went to Royal Credit Union. The winner in the Tortoise division was Northwoods Therapy Association. The team that raised the most money in pledges was Luna’s Ladies.
