Happy New Year everyone! We hope you had a wonderful holiday season with your family and friends. Moving into 2018, the A to Z team is excited to announce our upcoming FUNdraiser, Libations For Literacy, on Saturday, February 3rd from 7:00 – 10:00 at Park Place in Crystal Lake. Please come out and join us in tasting a few wines, sampling a few beers, and bidding on a few great silent auction items.
As you know, this annual event is critical for us to meet our organization’s 2018 goals. Currently, sending one shipment of books (six boxes) costs us $1,200 and we want to send at least five shipments this year. The nonprofit also strives to help fund professional learning opportunities for impoverished schools and teachers and provide tuition support for secondary students in Zambia. Of course, the proposed 2018 goals all line up with A to Z Literacy Movement’s mission to increase literacy levels and promote the love of reading locally and globally.
