What is We Bee Spelling?

Remember spelling bees in middle school? This is NOT THAT spelling bee.

We Bee Spelling is an interactive comedy game show and nonprofit fundraiser. Spelling is the game, but we add into the mix hilarious comedian judges, a rocking house band and all sorts of silliness to turn a nostalgic academic competition into a crazy fun party. Bees II Men -- the We Bee house band -- drive the energy with upbeat funky tunes throughout the night as comics from Comedy Central and late night TV make our spellers' task a bit more difficult (and amusing).

Spellers fundraise for great causes and then compete in the most intense etymological battle of their lives... but the audience has a say in the outcome. Spectators can donate for SABOTAGES -- playable game pieces that result in distracting challenges for spellers, like spelling words backwards or taking a mystery shot -- to trip up their friends and coworkers. Spellers stumble, we laugh, we dance, philanthropy wins.

Spell check and autocorrect, be damned! This show proves you can spell bad and still do g-o-o-d. We Bee Spelling has raised over $350,000 for philanthropic cause -- and had a silly good time doing it!

All in For LLS is a fundraising campaign organized by Jared Kneitel, a 2017 candidate for Man of the Year of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's New York City chapter.

The Man and Woman of the Year is a prestigious ten-week fundraising competition. The male and female candidate that raises the most money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society between March 23 and June 1 become the Man and Woman of the Year.

The All In For LLS team is centering its campaign on raising money to research whole-exome DNA sequencing technology. This new technology just might be the key to it all.

Whole-exome sequencing literally takes a detailed look at a patient's DNA, and the DNA of cancerous cells, to custom tailor a cancer treatment to the individual patient's DNA.

This is a whole lot more specific to the patient, less invasive, and with startling ramifications for not only blood cancers, but all types of cancer.

A group of researchers is working feverishly on this new type of treatment with specific focus on pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Of course, there is loads more work to do in this area. We need to raise significant awareness for this research and funds to continue to make it happen. 1-in-10 patients diagnosed with ALL will die. Many others diagnosed with other forms of blood cancers will die.

Someday, someone can do something about that.

Today is that day and we are that someone.

Thank you for your support.
