The numbers are in from the Legends for Literacy Gala and they add up to an unmistakable success:
  • Gross Revenue (what we took in) ~$92,000
  • Costs (what we spent) ~$19,000
  • NET (to support foundation philanthropy and club operations) $71,000+
Imagination, participation and support from many club members, led by co-chairs Pete Brock and Susan Kearney-Kaplan, made it possible.
Teaching materials purchased by our Childhood Literacy Initiative are already in use at Harry Kizirian Elementary School (as you may have seen in the video) and the foundation is sponsoring a professional training session for Kizirian teachers on Nov. 6.
