Annual fundraiser for Tompkins Learning Partners with guest Rex Parker

Tompkins Learning Partners of Ithaca announces the Sixth Annual Finger Lakes Crossword Competition on Sat. March 17th, 2018 from 1-4:00pm in the Boynton Middle School Cafeteria. All proceeds will be used to support Tompkins Learning Partners, a LiteracyNY affiliated non-profit organization, which provides literacy tutoring, free of charge, for over 100 adults in our community.

Ithaca's Puzzlemaster Adam Perl will once again create three original crosswords for the event. Individuals, or teams of up to four, are invited to compete for prizes in one of three levels of difficulty. This year’s event will include a silent auction, a 10 minute hilarious play (about puzzles), other games, raffles, drawings, and more. Also, for the first time, we will have separate competitions for “Middle Scholars,” (6th-8th grades) and High Scholars,” (9th-12th grades.)”
