BENEFITING: INTERNATIONAL LITERACY ASSOCIATION
EVENT: Steps To Advance Literacy 5K
EVENT DATE: Jul 10, 2016
This year Charlesbridge Publishing (www.charlesbridge.com) is celebrating Lola at the Library’s 10th anniversary. In honor of Lola, who is a lover of books and a natural champion of literacy, we will be sponsoring a team to run/walk in ILA’s Steps to Advance Literacy 5K on July 10th in Boston, MA (http://www.stepstoadvanceliteracy5k.com/), and we are also participating in this fundraiser to support the great work done by ILA and on a local level, Reach Out and Read. All funds raised here will benefit ILA local and international literacy initiatives. ILA is also working to advance literacy at the local level by collecting book donations for the Boston chapter of Reach Out and Read. So in honor of Lola’s 10th anniversary, for every $10 raised (for ILA’s literacy initiatives), Charlesbridge will donate 10 books to Reach Out and Read. Every bit helps, so we hope you will consider donating some amount to this worthy cause by July 10th – thank you!
