LiteracyCNY Announces 7th Annual SCRABBLE Mania Tournament
SYRACUSE, N.Y. — LiteracyCNY is hosting its 7th annual SCRABBLE Mania Tournament at 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 3, 2017, at The Oncenter.
“We’re excited to have our event in downtown Syracuse at the Oncenter again. We’re expecting a record crowd again this year and the Oncenter makes SCRABBLE Mania more accessible to new businesses interested in participating in and sponsoring this great event,” said Marsha L. Tait, LiteracyCNY’s Executive Director. “All proceeds help provide adults in Central New York with the literacy tools and skills they need.”
At the SCRABBLE Mania Tournament, teams of 8-10 players compete against each other to build the highest possible scoring SCRABBLE board in 20-minute rounds of play. Prizes will be awarded to each Round Champion, and one team will be named the Grand Champion.
The event includes game playing, refreshments, raffle prizes, and live entertainment from internationally acclaimed jazz musician and six-time SAMMY award winner Ronnie Leigh, accompanied by talented guitarist Marcus Curry. 93Q’s Ted and Amy will return as celebrity emcees.
