The next Storybook Heroes Luncheon will be held Friday, April 26, 2019, at the Garden Room at the Austin Renaissance Hotel at the Arboretum. Stay tuned for more details!
We were moved by the outstanding support from the Austin community in providing Central Texas children with “Happily Ever After’s.” On April 6th, we celebrated the power of books at the Renaissance Austin Hotel. Our deepest thanks to the over 200 guests who attended our 2018 Storybook Heroes Luncheon and helped make it a great success! With your help, we raised over $112,000 to ensure every child in Central Texas has 20 books by 2020 in their homes.
This year we celebrated and honored real-life storybook heroes Kaye and Randy Patterson and United Way of Greater Austin for their tireless dedication to closing the literacy gap.
