Last Monday, the American Marketing Association hosted their first philanthropic event: The Scrabble Challenge.

AMA was able to raise $432 for Literacy Volunteers of Greater New Haven. The mission of Literacy Volunteers is to empower adults through literacy.

Taylor Edgecomb, the President of AMA, was pleased to see the huge turnout, 18 teams, at the event.

She says, “A week ago today, there was only one team signed up. I think we marketed well.”

Navjot Singh, the immediate-past-President, said that Facebook, reaching out to personal connections, emailing professors, getting PEP approved, and of course food, really generated interest.

The event was held in the Alumni lounge at 8 p.m. where the APO Eagles took scrabble by storm. Sam Jones, Kayleigh Perez, Dan Disbrow, and Erin Snyder, the winning participants, took home first place and Amazon Gift Cards.

Signh says Literacy Volunteers is an organization that can help people who speak English as a second language read and write past an elementary school level.

“There are a lot of things that are simple for us because we are used to it and we take it for granted,” said Singh.
