On Thursday, April 23, 2015 The Homer Building will be filled with patrons of The Washington Literacy Center in celebration of their annual spring fundraiser. In the past you may know the event as Love Letters for Literacy, but this year they are putting a new twist on the event and turning it from a sit-down soiree to A Novel Event cocktail reception.

This year, the WLC welcomes the Honorable James E. Clyburn (D-SC), Assistant Democratic Leader in the 114th Congress, as the keynote speaker and will recognize Mr. Anas “Andy” Shallal and Mr. W. Christopher Smith as Workforce Champions. Mr. Shallal and Mr. Smith will be honored for their efforts to improve education and employment skills for District of Columbia adults.  Ad2DC will receive the 2015 Community Partner Award for their pro bono work to create a marketing campaign for the WLC.

 Ms. Andrea Roane, WUSA Channel 9 Morning Anchor, will serve as the emcee for the evening.  Ms. Roane was named a “leader & trailblazer deserving of recognition” by the ASAE & the Center for Association Leadership’s Greater Washington Network.

This year the WLC will recognize its inaugural Student Leadership

Class honoring WLC adult learners who are making significant gains in their basic skills and serving as mentors and role models for their fellow program participants.  They will also be announcing the members of their first Junior Council!
