The Whatcom Dispute Resolution Center raised more than $1,000 toward its programs and services at its third annual Compete for a Cause Scrabble Tournament on Feb. 4.
Hannah Fenske of Kirkland took home the championship in a daylong tournament with about 50 participants. Fenske defeated two-time former champion Elizabeth Hart, according to a Feb. 8 press release.
Other top players included Sherry Jubilo, Ronna Biggs, Matt Hoogestraat, Andrew Compain and John Rozeboom. The tournament was held at The Leopold in downtown Bellingham.
The center is a nonprofit that provides education and training on peaceful conflict resolution. Its trained mediators help community members resolve disputes in fair and cooperative ways. More information can be found online at www.whatcomdrc.org, or by calling 360-676-0122.
