RVNA Spelling Bee
On Monday evening, March 19th, 13 Ridgefield luminaries will take the stage at the Ridgefield Playhouse and enjoy a battle of words and wits in the RVNA Spelling Bee. The highly-entertaining fundraising event follows traditional Scripps National Spelling Bee rules . . . with a bit of a twist. Contestants are each permitted an audience ‘lifeline” to help them out with challenging words; they can “buy themselves back” into the contest — or the audience can — with a donation to the honey pot; and while winning is certainly applauded, the focus is on community, camaraderie and a whole lot of fun. As much as the Bee is an important fundraiser, raising money for RVNA nursing education, it’s almost as much of an annual "Fun-raiser"
