Read for Literacy’s Amazing Race, Dinner and Auction, presented by United HealthCare Community Plan, is Saturday, April 9 at 4 p.m. Registrations for teams of four are being accepted to join in the hunt, which starts and finishes at The Pinnacle, 1772 Indian Wood Circle, Maumee.
Teams will drive around town taking photos of clues, earn points and return to The Pinnacle for a buffet dinner, raffle, live and silent auctions.
For $160, teams of four are treated to dinner, dessert, coffee stations and a take-home bag of goodies from local vendors.
According to Event Chair Bonnie Berland, “The Amazing Race is a wonderful way for people to come together for a fun evening and at the same time support literacy programs in our community. All of the funds raised will allow ‘Read for Literacy’ to serve more students with books, training materials and other items that make them successful in the classroom and in life!”
Read for Literacy works to provide a range of literacy services and trainings that enable children, adults and families the opportunity to achieve success. In Lucas, Wood and Seneca counties over 39,000 families read at or below the basic fourth grade reading level. The goal is to provide quality programming, appropriate reading material and books to help students gain literacy knowledge.
