Madison Club Charitable Foundation to Support
the Literacy Network in 2018

As a continuation of our Foundation’s commitment to eliminating the achievement gap in education, we are pleased to announce that Literacy Network will be the beneficiary of the 2018 Charity Gala proceeds on Saturday, November 10. Please save the date and plan to attend this fantastic
evening of fun and fundraising. Literacy Network provides a two-generational approach
to the achievement gap, focusing on adult literacy. Look for more information on
Literacy Network’s programming in the coming months.

The selection of Literacy Network was made during our 2017 nominations process
in an effort to help our Gala recipients better plan and prepare for the event.
