Annual Team Scrabble Event to be held October 29, 2015

Following last year’s incredible success and record turnout, BG Capital Group Chairman Bobby Genovese has agreed to Co-Chair the Marion County Literacy Council’s 2nd Annual Team Scrabble event being held on Thursday, October 29, 2015 at the Country Club of Ocala, Ocala, FL. All event proceeds will be used to recruit, train and support volunteers who help adults in the community to improve their lives through literacy.

“I am honored to join such an important organization and cause and look forward to what promises to be another fun and incredibly successful event,” said Genovese of his commitment to the organization and efforts as returning co chair.

The event is staged using tables of eight-member teams that compete against one another in timed trials to create the highest value word combinations. Fun to play and entertaining to watch, participants use a variety of ploys to create high scoring words with the highest combination winning the grand prize.

“I am excited and privileged to work with the Literacy Council organization and team that are doing amazing things in the community every day in addressing the county’s 19% illiteracy rate. Together we can surely make a difference,” said Genovese.

The Literacy Council is the only local non-profit organization offering one-on-one adult basic education services, GED preparation, ESOL group classes, computer workshops, financial literacy education and citizenship classes.

Space is limited for corporate participation. Cost for tables of 8 are $1,000; individual tickets, are $50. For more information and to secure your space, call (352) 690-7323.
