Metro East Humane Society Hosts Adult Spelling Bee Fundraiser to Benefit Its Homeless Animals

All our Winter Warm-Up coverage for 99¢

Tickets Are Available for Purchase Online at 


Metro East Humane Society (MEHS) is hosting an Adult Spelling Bee presented by Hortica on Saturday, January 18 at Recess Brewing in Edwardsville. The doors will open at 6 p.m. and students must be in their seats for the first test at 7 p.m. All proceeds will benefit the homeless cats and dogs of MEHS.


"Last year’s first Adult Spelling Bee was a sold-out event, and we’re hoping for another success again this year. We are excited to be opening a second MEHS facility in Highland in 2020, and events like this help us to raise the funds needed to continue the lifesaving work we do in the community." said Amanda Kernan, Development Manager of MEHS.


Show off your spelling prowess at Metro East Humane Society’s Adult Spelling Bee. Teams of 4 will compete for bragging rights. Seating is limited to 40 people, so purchase your ticket ASAP! Admission is $60 per team of 4. The fundraiser will feature a lottery ticket raffle tree and MEHS merchandise for purchase. Recess Brewing will generously donate $1 for every beer purchased during the event back to MEHS.


Tickets are on sale now at You can also purchase tickets at the door. However, MEHS is expecting the event to sell out, so attendees may want to purchase their tickets prior to the event.
