September 13, 2012
Join us for a night filled with music, food, wine, and of course, beer as Project Flight hosts the fifth annual Booktoberfest. The event will take place at the historic and beautifully restored Pearl @ The Webb. Proceeds from this German-inspired event will help fund literacy programs for children. Your ticket, along with the money raised in a variety of auctions, will go directly toward putting books in the hands of children.

Since 1994, Project Flight has been dedicated to promoting literacy in children from pre-K through high school by getting books in the hands of kids who need them. To date, we've delivered more than two million books. We also provide tutoring to students and training to educators and parents. And we work with schools and community organizations on innovative educational strategies, grants, research, and evaluation – all with the goal of increasing literacy levels.
In the years to come we plan to continue our mission of ensuring every child lives in a literate environment, has books, and can read at grade level. We ultimately hope to become educators' preferred source – locally, nationally, and internationally – for guidance in improving student literacy.
