Literacy Center appreciation

I’d like to sincerely thank all of the participants and attendees at our 27th annual Celebrity Roast, held on Jan. 28, to honor Dr. Nolan Perez. On behalf of our board members, staff, volunteer tutors and students, we are all deeply grateful to the community for its support.

This year’s event raised approximately $17,000 and was our most successful fundraiser ever. Last year’s event raised approximately $13,000.

The Literacy Center of Harlingen is celebrating its 30th year in the community. Our volunteer tutors have assisted literally thousands of students, providing instruction in basic language, reading and writing skills, as well as GED and citizenship preparation.

Our continued presence and success would not be possible without the support of our community. So, again, I’d like to express my sincere thanks to all who participated.

Thank you for helping us make Harlingen a better place to live and learn.
