In less than a month the doors will open for the 12th Annual Red Hat Literacy Luncheon, hosted by the Adult Reading Center. With the confirmation of Larry Dierker, former Houston Astros Manager and famed pitcher, as their guest speaker, and Elissa Rivas as the Mistress of Ceremonies, the Center started this year with plenty of motivation to plan a wonderful Luncheon for more than 500 attendees and to exceed our community’s expectations. The event will be held on March 26 at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Pearland.
Dale E. Pillow, President and CEO of the Adult Reading Center, believes the support given by the community is what makes the Luncheon so special, “We have already received numerous sponsorships, and we are thrilled with all the support we’ve been getting! The silent auction items and Red Hot Apron are going to better than ever!”
Every time a letter comes in the mail or the phone rings, excitement takes over the office, according to Mrs. Pillow.
“Pearland knows about the attractions we have at the Luncheon. We’re constantly being contacted by gentleman from our community who would love to join our team of Celebrity Waiters. That shows how much people care and support the Center and the work we do. It doesn’t get much better than that.”
All proceeds from the Luncheon go to funding the programs the Center offers and allow it to provide instruction free of charge to adults with limited literacy skills who seek to learn English as a second language, to obtain their GED or citizenship, or to acquire computer skills and get a better job.
