Children First is excited to host our first annual Literacy Gala, on Friday, Nov 4, 2022, from 6:30 pm to 10 pm at Seven Oaks Country Club.

About this event

At this special gala, you’ll be transported into a world filled with wonder and beauty inspired by The Book of Life. Guests are invited to embrace the season for a night of music, dinner, silent auction prizes and art.

Masquerade and Mexican attire is encouraged.

Join us as we celebrate life and literacy and help us raise money to expand the Children First Literacy Program to more students in need!

Benefiting the Children of East Bakersfield:

In spring of 2022, Children First launched our first Literacy Program with Williams Elementary School. The program recruited 10 reading coaches and reading mentors to students in first, second, third, and fourth grades. This program enhances reading and comprehension skills for students who require additional support through small group interventions. The success of this pilot program has inspired us to expand its reach to more schools in East Bakersfield! Literacy is an essential element to a child’s development and opens the door to a brighter future. In 2023, Children First will broaden our circle of positive influence and grow our literacy program, but we need the help of generous community members like you! By attending this event, you are helping make that brighter future a reality for the children of East Bakersfield.
