Supporting family reading at Of Wine & Words

Join us for the 14th annual Of Wine & Words benefit and auction 

OF WINE & WORDS is The Reading Connection’s annual benefit and auction to support our mission to stem the cycle of poverty in the metro DC region through early education and literacy access.

More than 120,000 children in our community live in poverty, and we know children in poverty also live in “book deserts”— only one age-appropriate book for 300 children.

Each year more than 200 philanthropists, government and business executives, and community thought leaders gather to raise awareness for the importance of TRC’s early childhood education and literacy programs. Join us at Of Wine & Words. Together we can be the difference in a child’s life.

Friday, April 28, 2017,  from 7 to 10 p.m.

1526 New Hampshire Ave. NW

Washington, DC  20036

Children participating in the Read-Aloud program choose a new book to keep for their own each week. Almost all of the 4,553 books distributed in this way last year were books donated by the community. To donate books TRC's kids currently need, view our easy-to-find, always needed titles on TRC's Wish List or specially requested and currently needed titles on our Amazon Wish List
