The Southborough Education Foundation wants you to “bee” there (did I really just write that?) on Friday night for the fifth annual SEF Spelling Bee at Trottier Middle School. It’s an event that will pit team against team in a battle of orthographic skills.

But the event is not just about the spelling competition. There’s also a silent auction and a raffle. Raffle items include Red Sox tickets, an autographed Tim Thomas jersey, Bose headphones, mobile speakers, and ear buds, an iPad Touch, gift certificates to Tomasso, Culinary Underground, Salon Charisma, and more. Bid in the silent auction to win a photography session with Lisa Tommaney or a week at Fay Discovery Summer Camp.

Doors open for bidding on the silent auction items at 6:00 pm, and the spelling bee starts at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $1 for students, $2 for adults, and $5 for a family. Proceeds benefit SEF and their support for teaching programs at Southborough schools. You can learn more on their website (
