Room To Read: Fundraiser and Book Drive

19 09 2008

September is National Literacy Month and the Austin chapter of Room to Read is celebrating with a kid-friendly fundraiser and book drive! We had such a great time and received a lot of positive feedback after our first event at Hot Mama’s Espresso so we will be heading there again.Join us for delicious food, drinks and snacks as well as a raffle and fun events.

The entertainment includes: Miriam Gould, an Eastern folklore storyteller; live band, The Lennings; a cappella group The Ransom Notes; blubber-making; and local San Antonio author Diane Cantrell who will be reading and signing her book Good-bye, Baby Max, which is a touching story about how one class copes with the loss of their classroom pet.

Room to Read is a nonprofit that partners with local communities through out the developing world to establish schools, libraries, and other educational infrastructure. Through the opportunities that only an education can provide, we strive to break the cycle of poverty, one child at a time. Read more about the group here.

$10 suggested donation at the door. Gently used books for grades Pre-K through 5 will also be accepted for donation to local East Austin schools.

Thanks to Hot Mama’s for donating not only space but a portion of the proceeds from the event!
