With great pride and happiness for our Chicago A+D community, the first Industry Spelling Bee presented by regroup was a huge success. We had 22 Contestants from 11 Teams across 9 different firms/companies with 90+ attendants. The crowd’s attention was held throughout the event with a range of words.
We are looking forward to next year’s event already so be in the look out. Enjoy the photos below.

After much talking throughout the A+D industry I finally pulled the trigger and created the industry Spelling Bee “ReSpell”!
I am partnering up with the local chapter of ReGroup to get this event off the ground. It will be hosted at Marshall’s Landing at the Merchandise Mart where guests will be able to view the word to be spelled all while still out of the view of the contestant. We plan on having drinks, apps and DJ to help enhance the experience and heckling that I am sure will ensue. Below are more event details. If you are interested in sponsoring feel free to reach out to me directly.

Time: 5:30 – 9:30

Quick background on ReGroup:
Radically engaged, also known as regroup, was created in efforts to widen the breadth of possibilities for kids’ futures while benefiting their community and our neighbors in need. The group implements these efforts by creatively connecting the communities to the architectural and design profession through design-centric community events. Through these events, kids from the ages of 10-12 engage with design professionals whom are activating their potential and enlightening their future.
