AAJA-NY’s Scrabble for Cheaters Fundraiser

NAHJ members are invited to attend AAJA-NY’s Scrabble for Cheaters fundraiser.

From the event organizers:

On Saturday, October 3, AAJA-NY will be holding the fundraiser Scrabble For Cheaters at Plus Lounge (Slate – 21st St btw 5th & 6th Avenue). You might be wondering how exactly this tournament of verbal smarts and fraudulence will work. Here’s a rundown:

There will be ‘cheats’ available for purchase such as trading out a letter for $5 to inventing a word (with a definition of course) for $30! One will also be able to consult the dictionary for $20 and so forth.

And of course as this event is an AAJA fundraiser there will be 100 points available to anyone who puts down ‘AAJANY’.

Tickets for the event are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. All proceeds will benefit AAJA-NY. More ticketing information to follow.

The whole tournament will be about having fun and of course ‘pure’ scrabble will be played tournament-style also.

Scrabble for Cheaters will begin at 2pm at Plus Lounge (housed in Slate) on 21st Street.

We are hoping that this will be AAJA-NY’s biggest fundraiser ever and that you can help us achieve this success. Please feel free to invite family and friends, the more the merrier.

Happy hour prices on drinks & food will be available from an amazing kitchen throughout the event as you play or simply attend to offer support!

Happy hour drink specials are $4 beer draft and domestic, $4 well, $5 house wines, $6 house martinis.

For the winners of each tournament there will be the right to house a trophy for a year, huge bragging rights and a feel good factor for runners up also.

Let the cheating begin!
