The Concert for Literacy last week raised about $12,000 for Project READ in ticket sales alone (according to Project READ's Facebook post). And that didn't include all of the raffle tickets the volunteers (myself included) sold! It was a great time and a beautiful night.
Our EDT 110 class community partner, Project READ, has a huge fundraiser next week. The 7th annual Concert for Literacy will take place Thursday, June 30 at 8 p.m. at the Fraze Pavillion in Kettering, Ohio, featuring Parrots of the Caribbean (A Jimmy Buffett Tribute Band). Tickets are $10 for adults and $3 for children 10 and under. All proceeds benefit Project READ.
