Literacy Volunteers of Greater Hartford’s 8th Annual Read. Learn. Grow. Gala will take place on Saturday, April 1, 2017 at Farmington Gardens. The Gala will feature a silent auction, dinner, open bar, live music from Shaded Soul, and MC Todd Piro from NBC Connecticut and Amanda Raus from Fox61. Approximately 250 attendees, including many influential community and business leaders, are expected. Dollars raised from the Gala will help us continue our mission building a stronger, more resilient Greater Hartford by creating a community of fully literate adults. Last year’s event raised nearly $70,000 for our adult literacy programs. This year, with the support of our community, our goal is to raise $80,000.
