Kiwanis Club of Wright City members partner with Warren County Literacy, Inc. to raise money for the Dolly Parton “Books from Birth Program”. Children in Wright City from birth to 5 years old who are registered for this program will receive a free book in the mail each month.
Our first Fund Raiser in 2019 was called Wine, Books & Bingo. We offered a different Bingo Game. The cards spelled STORY at the top and we looked for names of children’s authors, titles, and characters. Prizes for rounds included books and a surprise in a tin which could be a gift card or something else. At the event we offered wine tasting from local vendors, 50/50 drawing and a silent auction.
In 2021 we held our second event called Books & Bingo. This event was exactly like the first, except we decided to drop the wine tasting. A great time was had by all and we’ve raised enough money to help fund Books from Birth for another year.
