The Reading Connection Celebrates Its Twentieth Anniversary

Support The Reading Connection at Its Upcoming Event

Literacy supporters who reside in the Virginia area may want to add The Reading Connection’s upcoming fundraising event, “Of Wine and Words,” to their calendars. “Of Wine and Words” will be held Thursday, March 12 from 6:30 to 9:30 PM at the Hilton Arlington in Arlington, Virginia. Attendees to this event will be treated to a wine tasting, silent auction, and an art exhibit titled “Imagination Blooms,” which will feature work by children who participate in The Reading Connection’s programs.

The Reading Connection is dedicated to improving the lives of at-risk children and families by helping them create and sustain literacy-rich environments and motivation for reading. Based in Arlington, Virginia, the nonprofit literacy organization will soon be celebrating its twentieth anniversary.
