par PARKDALE PROJECT READ INC
Come together to celebrate Parkdale Project Read, an adult literacy organization where people come to learn, dream, and work collaboratively with volunteers and members of a staff collective to build community. Parkdale Project Read began in 1980 when former public library worker, storyteller, and literacy advocate, Dr. Rita Cox decided to establish a literacy program at the Parkdale Library. It became an independent community organization in 1986, celebrating 30 years and counting of community adult literacy work. It has fought hard, and, with support from its members and from the larger social justice community, continues to fight hard for its member-driven model of collaborative decision-making and collective action.
As part of our raffle draw, the famous Gladstone Hotel has graciously donated a complimentary stay for 1 or 2 people in one of their "classic" hotel rooms. Enjoy a night of art and relaxation at this unique Toronto establishment.

And if dinner is in your budget, we urge you to reserve a table with Lula Lounge, 416-588-0307, as a vote of thanks to Lula for supporting this event.
