The Children’s Reading Foundation of the Mid-Columbia is pleased to announce Books and Vines – a virtual live and silent auction fundraiser. Books and Vines will be held virtually at www.BnV2020.Givesmart.com on September 11 from 6:30 to-7:30 PM.
The Children’s Reading Foundation of the Mid-Columbia’s 13th annual fundraiser, Books and Vines, will be held virtually this year due to COVID restrictions. This event raises funds to support the mission of the foundation by providing books, tools, and resources to our most vulnerable children and families across Benton and Franklin Counties. This year’s goal is to raise $100,000. “With schools and libraries closed, our mission is more important now then it has ever been.” Said Elizabeth Barnes, Executive Director. The Children’s Reading Foundation of the Mid-Columbia has distributed thousands of books into the community since the onset of COVID through partnerships with local community groups and schools.
Participation in the auction is free and all are encouraged to participate in the event. The silent auction opens September 5 at 8 AM and will close September 12 at 8 PM. Live auction will be held September 11 6:30-7:30 PM via Facebook live. To register for the event or to donate visit www.BnV2020.Givesmart.com
