The Foundation’s premier benefit event, Booked for the Evening 2015, took place on Friday, September 11 at 6:00 P.M, at Valley River Inn. We are pleased to announce that it was the most successful Booked for the Evening event in the history of the Foundation, raising more than $71,000 for Children’s Literacy and the Imagination Library of Eugene. Thank you to Honorary Chair, Dr. Nancy Golden for her tireless advocacy for early literacy. A performance of “Little Women” excerpts by Eugene Opera was enjoyed by all. Thank you to David Walker and Wesleigh Ogle for MC’ing the event, and to KVAL – TV for their coverage of the event, and pre and post-event PSAs for our community. Production has already started in Booked 2016. Check here to find out more information – coming soon!
