Reach Out and Read Fundraiser, Thursday, April 28th

Hello HBS Friends,

Please see the below invitation to Reach Out and Read RI’s Annual Charity Gala.  I’m serving on the event committee and helping to raise money for this worthy cause. I wanted to reach out in hopes that many of you will able to come and support!  The event will be held this Thursday, April 28, 2016 from 6:30-8:30 at the Providence Art Club.

To give you a little background on the organization, Reach Out and Read RI is the RI chapter of a national program.  It’s mission is to give young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together. This event raises money to purchase books for children to receive at their pediatric well visits. 57,000 books are donated each year. Doctors and nurses at 52 Reach Out and Read practices across the state give these brand-new books to young children when they get a checkup. By talking with parents and caregivers about the importance of reading aloud, they provide families with the tools they need to put their children on the path to school success.

Please check out the website to learn more about this great organization:  You can also learn more by watching this brief video that premiered at last year’s event.
