The Reading Connection 7th Annual Of Wine & Words

The Reading Connection is a local nonprofit that focuses on connecting books with local at-risk families in Arlington. Volunteers read aloud to children at shelters and community centers and provide donations that give children free, new books to keep. Last October I attended their successful fundraiser happy hour at Mister Days where they gave away a free iPod (not to me though, sadly).

This Friday March 25 they are having a Wine & Words fundraiser in Rosslyn. Ten local restaurants are donating food for the event, including Restaurant 3, Willow, Liberty Tavern, the Java Shack, and Eventide. Also provided are "robust meats, elegant side dishes and to-die-for desserts are on the menu at Of Wine & Words, along with a tasting of fine Virginia Wines provided by Chateau O’Brien at Northpoint."

Tickets are $75 and available now, proceeds going to the charity of course.
