Annual fundraiser to raise funds to support early literacy programs
A VIRTUAL EVENT RECAP
Raise a Glass for Reading!
Since starting in 2017, Raise a Glass for Reading has been CLI's signature event to come together to raise funds to support programs that help teachers and students succeed. This year we expanded our celebration across an entire week that we coined Spirit Week, hosting various events to connect with our donors and lovers of literacy. Check out our recap of this year's festivities.
