Books on Tap
Our 11th annual fall fundraiser, Books On Tap 2022, was one for the books!
Together, we raised almost $25,000 towards early literacy!
Not only did the Kansas City Chiefs rise to victory, so did children’s literacy because of the Reach Out and Read Kansas City’s 11th annual Books On Tap event held at Chicken N Pickle on September 15, 2022. Our emcee, Lady T from Hot 103 Jamz!, kicked off the night and 4 lucky winners found a gift card for 1 dozen cinnamon rolls each from the Tin Man during the scavenger hunt (hint: the answer to the clue was in the newsletter! Be prepared for next year!). The silent auction was our best one yet, with over 50 amazing packages, including a trip to Nashville for one lucky winner. There were 13 raffle winners, over 30 bottles of wine in the wine pull, Cotton Tale cotton candy, and all the activities Chicken N Pickle has to offer. A fun time was had by all! A big thank you to all of our volunteers, sponsors, In-kind donors, and attendees for making this a great night!
Mark your calendars for Books On Tap 2023 -- Thursday, Sept 14th, 2023 back at Chicken N Pickle-Overland Park. We will see you there! Cheers!
