Gift of Reading Gala

RIF’s 2011 Gift of Reading Gala will be a memorable evening filled with inspirational volunteers and supporters who share RIF’s vision of a literate America where all children have access to books and discover the joy of reading. Each year, the gala brings together distinguished policy makers as well as corporate and community leaders.
