2018 Charity Gala Sat, Nov 10, 2018 — 5:30PM
As the Madison Club Charitable Foundation continues its pledge to improving achievement and opportunity gaps in education, it is proud to recognize Literacy Network as the beneficiary of this year's Charity Gala. Please join us on Saturday, November 10 to support their proven, two-generational approach to bolstering academic success for under-served families in our area.
Low literacy impacts families through generations. Here in Dane County it is estimated that 1 in 7 adults struggle with low literacy. Each time we support an adult on their journey to improving their literacy we support them, their family, their employment and their community. 95% of Literacy Network's students are people of color. Most are parents, and many have less than a sixth-grade education. With a fundraising goal of more than $100,000, the proceeds from our event will allow Literacy Network to serve more than 100 more students over the next year.
Please support the effort by donating items for our auction, purchasing tickets to the event, or sponsoring the Madison Club Charitable Foundation's Gala. This engaging and impactful evening will feature a gourmet dinner prepared by the Madison Club’s award-winning chefs, as well as silent and live auctions.
Thank you in advance for your support and for your commitment to the Madison Club Charitable Foundation and Literacy Network of Dane County!
