Eat. Drink. Dance. Join us at Read to a Child Detroit’s annual gala from 6-9 p.m. Thursday, April 11, at Valentine Vodka in Ferndale located at 161 Vester Ave. Individual tickets can be purchased for only $45, and proceeds will support spreading the joy of reading to underserved elementary aged students in metro Detroit. Founded on the belief that every child deserves to be read to regularly by a caring adult, Read to a Child fulfills its mission through its flagship Lunchtime Reading Program at public elementary schools across the country. The program matches volunteers with students to read aloud one-on-one during lunchtime on a weekly basis throughout the school year. Read to a Child is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and your donation is tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
