A night of comedy with a spelling twist


360 Youth Services has planned an evening of spelling, laughs, and giggles with Chicago comedian Mike Toomey to benefit its youth programs and services.

On Friday, June 15, 360 Youth Services will host a new event To Bee or Not To Be – Knot Your Ordinary Spelling Bee!  The event will be held at the NIU Naperville Campus located at 1120 East Diehl Road, Naperville, starting at 7:00PM.

The Bee will feature 10 teams of spellers, made up of local business, civic leaders and TV personalities, who will compete for bragging rights and the privilege to display the unique winning trophy for a year.  Ticket prices will be $50 per person.

“We wanted to create a new, unique and exciting event that included a night of fun, laughter, comedy, food, friends and yes, a spelling bee to benefit 360 Youth Services”, said Dawn Portner, Special Events Coordinator.

“We had the chance to work with Mike Toomey a couple of years ago, when he was the headliner at our first comedy fundraiser, and ever since that night, our guests have been asking for an encore event. “

Proceeds from the Spelling Bee go to support the programs and services of 360 Youth Services, a non-profit, charitable organization, whose goal is to enrich the lives and relationships of youth and families through prevention education, counseling and housing.  360 Youth Services has been proving services to the community for 41 years.
