Compass Raises $5,000 for Oswego Literacy

   For five years, Compass Credit Union fielded a team at the annual Oswego County Opportunities (OCO) Literacy Volunteers Scrabble Fest, an annual charity event that promoted and supported literacy in Oswego County. When Scrabble Fest ended in 2016, Compass manager, Tom O’Toole, proposed that Compass take on this important charitable endeavor. In early 2018, a small committee comprised of former Scrabble Fest volunteers and participants began planning a 2018 Compass Credit Union Scrabble Fun Night. Their goal was to provide the community a fun-filled evening that simultaneously raised money to benefit literacy initiatives in Oswego County. The planning committee selected three literacy organizations to benefit from the proceeds of the event: Oswego County Literacy Volunteers, The Reading League, and the Oswego Community Christian School Library. Representatives of each benefiting group then joined the planning committee and increased the enthusiasm for the event.
   On Friday, September 21, 2018, 16 teams and numerous volunteers came together at Oswego Elks Lodge 271 to keep the support for literacy alive in Oswego County. They played Scrabble, aided by Scrabble Power Plays such as Ask the Expert, Steal the Dictionary, and Stop and Swap. They filled in the time between rounds of Scrabble to play Scrabble Bingo, have their photos taken in costume at the Scrabble Wall, and try their chance at raffles of gifts contributed by various donors. The night was filled with joy, laughter, and many winners. The Best Team Name Award was given to “Vowel Movement” while the Best Team Spirit was awarded to “Best Family Fun.” Almost everyone who played Scrabble Bingo was a winner with over 20 prizes being awarded. First-place winners of the two Scrabble divisions were Nelson Law Firm at the Novice level and “The Cleverest Team” at the Intermediate level.
   The greatest winner of the night was literacy. Funds raised from entry fees, Scrabble Power Plays, Scrabble Bingo, raffles, donations of food and prizes along with the following financial sponsors. Particular thanks goes to the $1000 sponsors, Compass Credit Union, Empower Federal Credit Union and Exelon; the $500 sponsor, Oswego Lion's Club; the $250 sponsors are Novelis, Owner’s Choice Funding, Hillside Park Real Estate and Money Federal Credit Union; and the $100 sponsors Canale Insurance and Accounting and the Oswego Elks Lodge. The vision of continuing to promote and support literacy in Oswego County is alive and well. Be prepared to join us for the next Scrabble Fun Night in 2019.
