Yep folks, it's that time of year. It's time for the Emerson Kidsmart Back 2 School 2008 Celebrity Spelling Bee!!! For the low low price of just seventy six dollars you can join host Joe Buck and various "celebrities" at The Pageant (St. Louis) this May 8th.
At the event, celebrities will be teamed with corporate sponsors to test their knowledge in math, geography and science. Held at The Pageant in the University City Loop, the event includes auctions, raffle, dinner by the bite and drinks.In all seriousness it's always good to give back to the kids, but calling these following people celebrities is just wrong. ....
Proceeds from the “Back to School with Joe Buck Celebrity Bee” benefit KidSmart – Tools for Learning. Founded in 2002, KidSmart works to empower children in need to succeed in school by providing essential school supplies for them to learn. Through a free store for teachers, the basics such as crayons, loose leaf paper and scissors are available to economically disadvantaged youth.
Karen Foss, Eric Brewer, Julie Buck (I wonder how lil' sis got the gig?), Ralph Butler, Courtney Cooper, Shimmy Gray-Miller
I'm pretty sure people in St. Louis don't know who these people are. Oh and what the hell is "dinner by the bite"?
