This Saturday, a little slice of Hawaii will be surfing into Richmond courtesy of Girls Inc. of West Contra Costa.
The organization will be hosting an end of summer “Literacy Luau” “to promote literacy in our community and celebrate the end of another beautiful summer,” according to organizers.
The Literacy Luau is lined up for Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Girls Inc., 260 Broadway, in Richmond.
Children of all ages, families and community members are invited to come out and enjoy free books, food and entertainment. There will be a host of fun, family friendly activities including a Hawaiian costume contest, free raffles, lei making, appearances by two local female authors and a spoken word session.
“Our aim with this event is to once again invite the community to celebrate with our Girls Inc. family: summer fun and learning, literacy and quality family time; all things we are passionate about,” Girls Inc. Assistant Executive Director Cristal Banagan told For Richmond.
Local organizations interested in hosting a vendor booth at the event or participating in another way are encouraged to contact Banagan at email@example.com or 510-232-5440. Vendor set-up will begin at 10 a.m.
Community members interested in attending the Literacy Luau are asked to register for the free event on Eventbrite here so organizers can gauge attendance.
Girls Inc. of West Contra Costa is a nonprofit organization focused on inspiring girls to be strong, smart and bold.
“We look forward to seeing you at this fun event, as our community develops ‘readers into leaders,’” said Banagan in a correspondence about the Literacy Luau.
