Alice in Wonderland props for SLD Read

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) Take a trip down the rabbit hole and into the wonderful world of Alice in Wonderland at an event called Bringing Literacy to Life!

Bringing Literacy to Life is presented by SLD Read, which works with children and adults who have reading, writing, and spelling challenges. The event will highlight Herman Miller Cares, the charitable organization under Herman Miller that has been supporting SLD Read to make sure they have an impact in the community.

Tickets are $75 per person and include a total Wonderland adventure complete with characters, food, and beverages. There will be silent and live auction with items and packages including a weekend in a suite at the Indy 500 Memorial Day Weekend or a five course dinner including champagne for six at The Chop House.

All proceeds from the event go to Language Links, a volunteer program through SLD Read that works with first through third grade struggling readers in Grand Rapids Public Schools and Wyoming Public Schools.

Bringing Literacy to Life is on Thursday, April 23 at 6 p.m. at the Goei Center in Grand Rapids. Tickets can be purchased online.
