Arts & Education fundraising Luncheon

Bringing Books to Life Fundraising Luncheon

Plan to attend our annual Bringing Books to Life Fundraiser on October 28, 2016. This year we’re holding a luncheon from 11:30am-1:00pm at the Rainier Club, 820 4th Ave, Seattle. Proceeds from this event fund Book-It’s touring stories, in-class residencies, teacher training, student matinees, and community programs for youth. Last year, with your help, we reached 60,000 students and educators throughout Washington State with Book-It’s arts and education programming. We are grateful for your support of our literacy work in schools.
