We Bee Spelling is what happens when you combine a late-night variety show and a spelling bee. Part Japanese game show, part improv comedy and all sorts of crazy, this comedy game show will feature Salmon-side project Sockeye as the house band, Vince Herman as host, and comedian hosts Kyle Ayers (Boast Rattle) and Alex Greer. Contestants compete for academic glory, not just spelling words, but facing off in messy head-to-head games, performing on the spot talent contests, and dealing with the audience as they "sabotage" spellers, forcing them to spell words backward, take mystery shots and battle other distractions while showing off their skills.  It's like the Scripps Spelling Bee for class clowns. But its more than just a wacky game show: We Bee Spelling events are also nonprofit fundraisers In the past three years, these events have raised over $600,000 for causes supporting education, the arts, youth mentorship, health care, community programs, civil rights and more.

Colorado Mental Wellness Network is a state-wide, grassroots, peer-run organization that seeks to provide opportunities for individuals to improve the quality of their lives, give back to their communities, and change public perceptions of mental illness. We do this by providing whole-person wellness education to people who are building a lifestyle of recovery. In order to spread this message further, we also advocate for person-centered care in traditional healthcare settings.
