Greenville Literacy Association will host Bee a Better Greenville, an adult spelling competition, 6 – 9 p.m. March 30 at Larkin’s Sawmill in downtown Greenville.

Bee a Better Greenville is a revival of a spelling competition held in the 90s, known then as the Corporate Spelling Bee. Expect a rollicking good time fueled by friendly competition and the guidance of MC, local celebrity JDew! There will be heavy hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and raffles to benefit GLA.

Teams are comprised of corporate sponsors and individual fundraisers. Teams may enter through corporate sponsorship or individual fundraising. For registration information, contact Eleanor Vaughn at For audience tickets and event details, visit
