Twenty-One Acres in Auburn will be the site of the Lee County Literacy Coalition’s eighth annual “Reading Between the Wines” event on Feb. 27.
Featuring food, live jazz music and wine tastings, the highlight of the event will be a presentation from a yet-to-be-named local author and organizational update from Executive Director Patricia Butts.
Assuming leadership of the LCLC last summer, Butts said fundraisers like this and the Great Grown-Up Spelling Bee help fuel their mission of creating brighter futures for Lee County residents.
“We are having to adapt to today’s technology and use it to help us in our mission, and we are always striving to make sure that we reach out to more learners and tutors. We want to educate folks about literacy and take away some of the stigma for the learner as they go through the programs we offer,” Butts said in an August 2019 interview with the Observer.
Tickets are $65 each, and can be purchased online at www.leecountyliteracy.org or by calling 334-705-0001. Like and follow their Facebook page and visit the website for updates on this event.
Twenty-One Acres is located at 5505 Wire Road.
