You Can't Spell Fundraiser Without Fun: Literacy Council Spelling Bee Raises Thousands

A big step was taken today in the fight to improve adult literacy in Tyler.

More than $40,000 dollars was raised for the Literacy Council of Tyler, and it came in the form of a spelling bee.

The money goes to a serious cause, but as KLTV 7's chief photojournalist Kendrick Henderson shows us, those who helped raise it had a lot of fun doing it.
