The Young Lawyers Section of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association is sponsoring—Season’s Readings, Open a New Chapter for Cleveland Schools - formerly known as “Scrooge Cratchit” - an event to put books on the shelves of seven Cleveland Metropolitan School District elementary schools.
For only $50, you will receive a ticket to the benefit, enjoy hearty appetizers and cocktails throughout the evening, and listen to live entertainment by CMSD’s All-City Jazz Band. We will be auctioning a wide variety of items during the event, such as pampered getaways, overnight hotel stays, bar study courses, photography sessions, gift cards, event tickets, and much more!
All proceeds benefit the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Foundation and will go directly to the purchase of library books which will then be distributed to Euclid Park, Warner, Douglas MacArthur, Miles Park, Hannah Gibbons, Waverly, and Buhrer elementary schools— all in severe need of new library books.
A new library book costs on average $12. The Cleveland Metropolitan School District is able to allocate approximately $8 per student for new book purchases. That amounts to 2/3 of a book per student per year, a wholly unacceptable total. In many CMSD schools, students walk into libraries that are at-best outdated and, at-worst, empty. Fortunately, you can help.
Season’s Readings promises to be a gala event with plenty of great food, cocktails, entertainment, and silent auctions on items throughout the evening.
Cleveland’s elementary students need our help. We look forward to seeing you at Season’s Readings to help give them the books that they need to succeed.
Thank you to our 2010 event sponsors!
