Literacy New York Buffalo-Niagara

IMG_2241 Last week I was lucky enough to attend Cocktails in Character for Literacy New York Buffalo-Niagara, Inc. What a great event it was! To sum it up its certainly not like any other non-profit gala or charitable events I've attended in the past. It was short, sweet, creative and fun.

Guests had the option to dress up as their favorite literary character {Annette and I went as Thing 1 and Thing 2 from Dr. Seuss, as you can see from the picture above}. There was a silent auction and Chinese auction, a VIP area {for those who purchased VIP tickets}, food stations, a cash bar, a live band and a short program that was to the point.

If you're looking to get involved with an organization that is fun, but serves a great purpose in the lives of children and adults consider looking into Literacy New York Buffalo-Niagara, Inc. Click here for more information on volunteering/tutoring.
