2019 ANNUAL FUNDRAISING GALA | CELEBRATING THE IMPORTANCE AND THE POWER OF LITERACY

Literacy, the ability to not only to read and write, but also to communicate in a rapidly changing world, is of vital importance for all.

The United States is facing a literacy crisis. According to the National Adult Literacy Survey, approximately 44 million people in the United States cannot read well enough to fill out an application, read a food label, or read a story to a child. In Ohio, 24% of all people over the age of 18 do not have a high school diploma (Ohio's Future at Work). According to estimates by the U.S. Department of Labor, literacy problems cost U.S. businesses about $225 billion a year in lost productivity. These costs result from employee mistakes, injuries, absenteeism, tardiness, missed opportunities, and other problems associated with low literacy.

Our organization is on a mission to help increase literacy, and help teachers build a culture of continued growth inside and outside of the classroom.

Rising Stars of America (RSOA), invites you to our 4th Annual Read To Lead Fundraising Gala to celebrate the importance and the power of literacy. The event will be held on Friday, November 15, 2019 from 7:00PM - 10:00PM at the Manor House in Mason, Ohio.

The annual event helps to raise awareness and critical funds for early literacy. Your support and generous donations will benefit RSOA Literacy and Educational Programs. Also, donations will help towards the purchase of brand new books and school supplies for the 4th grade students at John P. Parker Elementary School.

The fundraising gala general admission tickets are $45 each or $450 for a table of (10). The evening will include a seated dinner, cash bar, music, raffles, amazing keynote speakers - Dr. O'dell Owens, President and Chief Executive Officer of Interact For Health and Barbara McMahan, President of Atticus Consulting, LLC and so much more. The Honorable Judge Fanon Rucker will be the gala's Master of Ceremonies.

Enhance your experience and make the night even more memorable by purchasing a VIP ticket for $60. The VIP Gala experience is an opportunity for our guests to enjoy early check-in and a VIP reception starting at 6:30pm with music provided by DJ D Marsh, light hors d’oeuvres, a complimentary drink, free raffle ticket for a chance to win amazing prizes, a meet and greet with photo opportunities with keynote speakers and priority reserved dinner seating at the main event.
