Join us for Go Bananas weekend on April 29 and 30th and play Bananagrams in honor of Lake Erie Ink!

While we were hoping to be able to host our Giant Bananagrams tournament this year, we want to make sure we are keeping our staff and supporters safe, so we are going to play Bananagrams in a socially distant way this year.



-Set up a peer to peer fundraising page and set your own fundraising goal. Raise at least $25 to join in the Bananagrams fun on April 30. See more information below

-Play Giant Bananagrams LIVE with a group of 10-20 of your friends at Lake Erie Ink. Times available throughout the day on April 30. Giant Bananagrams tiles and a referee will be provided! Tickets are $150 for the entire group.

-Share your stories about some of your favorite games! Join us for a storytelling hour April 30th at 7:30PM, hosted by Dana Norris, tickets are $10. Location: Rising Star Coffee Roasters, Lee Road



There will be a virtual kickoff event Friday, April 29 featuring tips and tricks for bananagrams, live streamed bananagrams games, testimonials about the power of games for creativity, storytelling and poetry.

Set your own fundraising goal and on April 30, gather with your friends and family for a day of board games and creativity. Play Bananagrams (or another game of your choice) and share pictures of your Bananagrams board. Create poems and stories based on the words from your boards and share them with the rest of the Bananagrams players. Stay tuned throughout the day for our Banana Peel Challenges for even more creative ways to play Bananagrams. Encourage your networks to support the team with the most creative boards and stories! Share why LEI is important to you and encourage your friends to give.

Prizes awarded for top fundraisers (in both categories of the money raised and number of donations) and highest rated Bananagram boards!

A limited number of Bananagrams sets will be available as prizes for raising $100 by April 15

Not a fan of Bananagrams? Pick your favorite game to play instead!


Players of all ages are welcome! All proceeds support Lake Erie Ink’s creative writing programming for youth.
