was a Success!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for a fun-filled evening on March 13. It was a great, engaging way to celebrate literacy as a community.
Special thanks to Councilmember Sidney Katz and State Senator Cheryl Kagan for joining us and for their continued support of adult literacy in Montgomery County.
With your help, we raised over $44,000 to use for our adult literacy programs. The evening would not have been possible without the support of all of our participants, volunteers, contributors, donors, and sponsors. For photos from the event and a list of our sponsors, click here.
