For the Love of Books

It was wonderful being back in person this year! We enjoyed the morning with Christel Bell from Fox 4 at the helm. Katie Schultz inspired us with her story about the power of giving, our impactful video of how our program works and, of course, the moving and inspirational story from our Keynote Speaker, Angela Cervantes. Click here to view images captured throughout the morning by the talented Maegan Kabel from Gumball Revue.

We can't thank our sponsors and attendees enough for their support. Events are extremely important in helping us get books into the hands of our local children and you have made our job easier. Together, we raised just over $57,000! 

We appreciate your partnership and generosity!
