During the 2017 Mayor's Literacy Leadership Award Breakfast:

Houston Center for Literacy's Mayor's Literacy Leadership Award Breakfast took place on Thursday, June 1st at River Oaks Country Club from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. The Mayor's Literacy Leadership Award Breakfast brings together many of Houston Center for Literacy's friends- donors, volunteers, legislators, and learners alike- and raises awareness for the need to build a more literate Houston.

Kim and Dan Tutcher chaired this event because of their strong belief in addressing the literacy crisis in our community and helped us honor the 2017 Mayor's Literacy Leadership Award Recipient, Houston Astros', Carlos Correa. Funds raised at the event will helped Houston Center for Literacy fulfill its work to narrow the education gap in our city and foster a more literate, prepared community in the process.

 

Stay tuned for more information on the 2018 Mayor's Literacy Leadership Award Breakfast!
