"Reading Between the Wines"
GOOD Network will 'do good' on April 17, 2019 by supporting a special fundraising event for Adult Literacy League through our members' attendance!
Join fellow members and guests at this great event and have 100% of your ticket price go to providing needed services. Adult Literacy League (ALL) provides assessment, tutoring, learning materials, GED classes/ testing, books, and various ESOL, computer skills, writing, math classes and other programs in Central Florida.
At the 12th annual "Reading Between the Wines", you will enjoy great wine, delicious food from several high-end restaurants, a silent auction, and you get to meet Pulitzer Prize winning author, Gilbert King ( www.gilbertking.com). His Pulitzer is for “Devil in the Grove” based on an incident in Groveland Florida. AND the American Library Association just named Gilbert King a winner of the prestigious Carnegie And Notable Book Award for his novel, “Beneath a Ruthless Sun: A True Story of Violence, Rape, and Justice Lost and Found.”
GOOD Network members might meet up during the event to socialize and support this worthy cause.
HOWEVER, we are NOT collecting payments for tickets. Please pay separately for your event tickets at the ALL website. https://www.adultliteracyleague.org/events/rbtw2019/
And, your ticket price is totally tax deductible.
Why do we support Adult Literacy League? Literacy is an essential foundational skill in 21st century Central Florida. However, in our region, 44% of adults do not have the literacy skills they need for home, work and life. In fact, 1 in 5 (20%) struggle with very serious literacy challenges and have trouble reading even the most basic text. An additional 20% can read but not well enough to meet the demands of today’s society.
Come help us support this worthy organization and enjoy GOOD times together!
