Longview Holds Corporate Spelling Bee

A charity event in Longview looked more like a game show at an area junior high school.

Crazy dress, and spirited spellers accented the 15th annual Longview corporate spelling bee, at Pine Tree junior high school, yesterday.

Sixteen teams, ranging from city workers to corporate employees gathered together to raise money for the East Texas Literacy Council. The Literacy Council tutors adults and children in Gregg county.

For those who participate every year, it's a chance to have some fun for a good cause.    Over 300 people attended the event at Pine Tree.
