Just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for attending, and for those who could not make it we have heard you. Save the date for the next event, Sunday May 23, 2010. Location and more information will be forthcoming.
So the first event was a MAJOR SUCCESS. We had over 100 people attend and collected more than 350 books for the teens. We made connections, shared stories, and had a great time.
We just want to take a moment to thank the Grafton for letting us take over their bar. We want to thank the Unabridged Bookstore for donating the gift certificate. We want to thank Leah White, Adam Girard and Anthony Molaro for organizing the event and the organization. Most importantly, we want to thank YOU!!! Thank you for stepping up and donating! Thank you for stepping up to offer help with future events, and steering the organization! Thank you for letting your voices be heard! And thank you for just hanging out!!!
A survey for those who could not make it and pictures will be forthcoming.
