This unique event at the Freedom Plains United Presbyterian Church in Lagrange also includes raffles, an online auction, and a SCRABBLE-themed photography contest. Registration deadline is October 16.


The annual SCRABBLE Blitz Tournament is a fast-paced, timed, team style of play with fun bonus point possibilities; players have the option of ‘competitive’ or ‘just for fun’ wordplay. Registration for the event is $30 per person or $60 per team and includes three rounds of play, prizes, beverages, snacks, and one free raffle ticket. Complete rules and entry forms are available online at mid-hudsonloveinc.org.


Photographers are invited to enter the ‘Best Board Photo Contest’ with a close-up photograph of a SCRABBLE board displaying words describing the work of Love INC. Photographs must be emailed by 10/13 for exhibit at the tournament. One prize will be awarded. Entry fee is $25 for each photography entry. For the auction, online bidding on artwork, jewelry, and other items will open two weeks prior and close at the tournament. The link will be available at mid-hudsonloveinc.org.


Proceeds from this fundraiser will fight poverty through the work of the local non-profit organization, Mid-Hudson Love In the Name of Christ. Love INC mobilizes volunteers to address poverty and build resilience across the local community through delivery of much-needed resources and offering life-skills classes. Freedom Plains United Presbyterian Church hosts the tournament at 1168 Route 55 in LaGrange.
