Annual Vintner Dinner

For the past 25 years, Children’s Literacy Center (CLC) has strived to “Build a life of success through a foundation of literacy…ONE child at a time”.

  • The 2017 State of Literacy in Colorado Report from Stand for Children Colorado states that low literacy rates cost the country at least $225 billion each year due to non-productivity, crime, and lost revenue.

  • According to Stand for Children Colorado 61% of Colorado’s fourth graders cannot read at grade level.

These startling statistics are why the Children’s Literacy Center (CLC) provides effective one-to-one tutoring to over 500 students yearly at NO COST to their families.  In support of these children, CLC is excited to be hosting the 22nd  Annual Vintner’s Dinner, October 27, 2018, at the beautiful 5 Star Broadmoor Hotel.   Beginning with a silent auction, followed by a four-course dinner with wine pairings from a prestigious Vintner, and concluding with a live auction, this is a not-to-miss event.
