Dinner & Benefit

The Mayflower Hotel | 1127 Connecticut Ave NW | Washington, DC 20036
The Washington Literacy Center will hold our annual Love Letters for Literacy Dinner & Benefit on June 17, 2020 from 6:00pm to 10:00pm at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC. This event is our signature fundraiser and will feature cocktails, dinner, and a live auction. This is our largest fundraiser with 100% of net proceeds supporting the WLC mission.
Love Letters for Literacy guests will hear inspiring stories from students who have participated in WLC’s adult literacy program. WLC students come from all walks of life—some are new to the country while others are high school graduates who are reading at a minimum level. Many are mothers and fathers who are having difficulty finding work because they can’t read job announcements in a newspaper or a job application. What brings these students together at the WLC is their desire to learn to read and lead a better life for themselves, and in many cases, for the families they support. Make current and future WLC students your Valentines by purchasing your event tickets today and giving DC-area adults the chance to improve their basic reading skills, meet their goals and function better on the job, in their families, and in the community.

To read is to empower. To empower is to write. To write is to influence. To influence is to change. To change is to live.
