Event description

Description

We are very much honored to invite you to Persisting Beyond Margins, ALSO’s first annual “Banned Book Night”. Local authors, journalists and poets will read from their favourite banned books.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

There will be a silent auction with amazing items for you to bid on. Each ticket entitles you to a few glasses of fabulous local wine, cheese and appetizers, access to the event and the silent auction.

$40 per ticket or 2 for $70. If you buy more than 5 tickets you will receive a 20% discount per ticket. $20 from the sale of each ticket qualifies for a charitable tax receipt.

ALSO's first annual Fundraising Banned Book Night

The event will support ALSO’s family literacy programming in the community. We offer the Reading and Parents Program (RAPP) to 6 partner sites serving over 150 low income families each year. Vanier, Rideau Rockcliffe, Overbrooke and Lowertown all have a high percentage of vulnerable families with children who are not as ready for school as they need to be. RAPP provides parents with the skills they need to better support their child’s learning at home. All proceeds go into direct service at the community level.

ALSO has long been a champion for family literacy in Ottawa. We persist beyond margins, serving our community’s most vulnerable families. The families we serve persist beyond margins too, struggling to support their child’s learning and ensuring that everyone in the family has enough. This is no small task. We encourage you to persist beyond margins, reaching out, getting involved and supporting a small local charity doing good work – it’s not just about the big guys!

THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS!
