We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended our 10th Anniversary, and to all those who offered their support. We could not have asked for a better evening.
We hope you enjoyed yourself as much as we all did! From Taylor Mali’s beautiful words through Renee Elise Goldsberry’s amazing set, we loved every minute of it, and we are all truly honored to have had you there with us.
This event, though, wasn’t just a celebration, but also a fundraiser--and we surpassed our goals for the evening and raised nearly $500,000!
All proceeds from this event help Writopia Lab support and grow our diverse literary community of children and teens of all backgrounds, including low-income, refugee, LGBTQ, homeless, and hospitalized youth and youth involved with the criminal justice system.
