The Bristol Warren Education Foundation’s (BWEF) fifth annual Bodacious Bee will be held on Saturday, March 9 at 5:30 p.m. in the Roger Williams University Field House.
The Bodacious Bee is an adult spelling bee fund-raiser that has become BWEF’s signature event. The theme for the event is “Bee a Reader — Children’s Books.”
The Bee includes the competition itself as well as a cocktail hour, appetizers from 195 Franklin, barbecue from The Preppy Pig, a cash bar, live auction, raffle, trophies and other surprises.
Tickets and event sponsorship information are available at www.bwedfoundation.org along with all the event details and how to join the fun.
Tickets are limited and the Bee has traditionally sold out.
