I'm thrilled to report that
Reach Out and Read RI hosted another successful gala at the Providence Art Club on April 28, 2016. The event was
SOLD OUT and we raised close to $60,000 to support Reach Out and Read programs across Rhode Island.
Please take few minutes to scroll down and enjoy the photos from our evening.
Have you ever wondered what we do with the money we raise at our gala? I'm glad you asked! Proceeds are used to buy books for our
54 health care sites, train and support over 200 health care providers who implement the program and collect data on program delivery. And EXPAND! We want to take on every practice in the state, and have every child age birth through 5 years receive our important intervention.
Thank you to our supporters! We'll see you next year!
