The Reading Connection Anniversary Party

Arlington based children’s non-profit The Reading Connection announces the date for its 10th Annual of Wine and Words annual fundraiser to be held Friday, April 4.  This year marks TRC’s 25th anniversary, celebrating its achievements in providing literacy-rich programs and services for at-risk children and families. The party lasts from 7-10pm at the Jones Day Rooftop Terrace in DC.
Of Wine and Words will celebrate the region’s culinary excellence featuring the area’s top restaurants. This year's many participating local restaurants and beverage partners include Clarendon venues like Eventide and Green Pig Bistro. There will also be several silent auctions to benefit The Reading Connection's literacy programs. Last year's fundraiser made $82,000 and this year's goal is $100,000.  The ticket prices for the event are $50 for TRC volunteers, $100 for individual tickets and $150 for tickets that include the VIP Reception.
