10th Annual Webster’s War of the Words
April 27 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Congregation Beth Israel, 701 Farmington Avenue
West Hartford, CT 06107 United States
Webster’s War of the Words is the definition of dinner and a show. This signature fundraiser comes complete with dinner by Rizzutos, wine and beer by City Steam, fabulous silent and live auction items, and the main attraction – the game show! Words are more important than ever. If you’ve been following current events, words like ‘allegory,’ ‘syzygy,’ and ‘Kafkaesque’ might take on a special meaning for you. Then there are old-fashioned words like ‘popinjay’ and ‘calumny’ that have recently made a come-back. At Webster’s War of the Words, Merriam-Webster’s Editor at Large, Peter Sokolowski, will test the knowledge of two teams of local celebrities – and the audience – in a lively and interactive battle of words and wit.
All proceeds from this event to benefit the birthplace of Noah Webster, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit. The event will take place from 6-9 p.m. at Congregation Beth Israel, 701 Farmington Avenue in West Hartford, CT 06119.
