Learning Lab's Virtual Lunch for Literacy
Mark your calendars for Friday, February 5th, 2021
We are thrilled to have you join us! We will certainly miss seeing all of you in person but we are very excited about the opportunities this new format is giving us.
Taking our luncheon virtual allows even more friends and supporters to join us as we celebrate the hard work and dedication of our students.
Holding our much-loved, book-themed silent auction in a virtual gallery gives you more time to peruse the unique and clever book baskets. You?ll have days to bid on the items you love, instead of just hours.
This year also marks Learning Lab?s 30th Anniversary and we are so happy to share this time with you, celebrating the generous community support that has kept Learning Lab going (and growing) since 1991!
We will hear messages from former guest authors who have participated as keynote speakers at past luncheons.
Of course, we will share a touching student video, which is always a highlight at the event.
To top it off, Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Anthony Doerr will interview his friend, actor and author, Jamie Lee Curtis, as part of the luncheon festivities.
Your continued support of our students means the world to us. Thank you!
