The 14th Annual ScrabbleBee was the buzz of the valley April 23, 2015, raising $40,000 for Literacy Volunteers Chippewa Valley. There were 39 teams who strategized playing Scrabble to win prizes, bid on silent auction items, purchase raffle tickets, and have a honey of a good time. The teams filled the Sleep Inn Conference Center, Eau Claire.
