Reading Partners New York's 5th Annual Benefit

Event information

Reading Partners New York will hold its fifth annual benefit on Wednesday, May 16 at City Winery to support the organization’s growing work. Reading Partners’ tutor community is comprised of over a thousand diverse individuals who make an enormous commitment of their time, effort, and heart to support our students as they acquire the critical skills necessary to succeed in school and beyond. As such, this year we are thrilled to honor our tutors to formally recognize their dedication and hard work. Long-time tutors Kerri Martin Bartlett and Susan Cummings-Walder are serving as event co-chairs. Erin Argo and Jennifer Woods will co-chair the auction.

The benefit will engage over 350 professionals representing a wide cross-section of industries and offers a variety of sponsorship levels for individual and corporate involvement. Over drinks and hors d’oeuvres, guests will gather at City Winery to network with other professionals who care about education and giving back to their community, and will learn about Reading Partners’ program and impact from multiple stakeholders.
