Description

Greater Hartford Read to a Child looks forward to welcoming our friends to our annual fundraising gala “The Magic of Reading” on Thursday, June 6, 2019 (6-8 p.m.) at the Mark Twain House in Hartford. The evening will feature refreshments, a silent auction, and entertainment.

This year, as we celebrate 20 years of the Greater Hartford Lunchtime Reading Program, we are excited to be joined by our special celebrity guest host, Carolina Cruz, news reporter on WFSB.

Read to a Child, www.readtoachild.org, is a national literacy and mentoring non-profit that fosters a love of reading, improves literacy skills, and empowers underserved children by inspiring adults to read aloud to them regularly. Research shows that reading aloud to children is the single most important activity for eventual success in reading, a key factor for success in school, work, and life. When an adult reads aloud to a child, both parties have a joyful, rewarding experience that instills a love of reading, improves literacy skills, and enhances a child’s self-confidence. Read to a Child’s Lunchtime Reading Program utilizes more than 1,800 volunteer mentors from over 150 socially-minded organizations who read one-on-one to more than 1,400 at-risk elementary school students in Greater Boston, Detroit, Hartford, Los Angeles and Miami.

We are honored to offer event sponsorship opportunities to companies and organizations that are committed to promoting literacy and increasing our neediest students’ chances for success in school, work, and life! Sponsors will receive special recognition and visibility before, during, and after the event. For more information about event sponsorship, click here.
