Read to Succed is pleased to share information about our annual fundraising event at the Providence Performing Arts Center. On Saturday, December 8th, we will host a VIP Reception at the Providence Hotel’s Backstage Bar + Kitchen (starting at 6:30 PM) followed by the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra and Conductor Keith Lockhart for their sparkling and beloved Holiday Pops concert (8:00 PM performance). We hope that you will join us for a wonderful evening raising funds for low-income, largely minority South Providence students.
Ralph and Barbara Papitto founded Read to Succeed in 2008 to provide a new educational opportunity that greatly improves the futures of at-risk Providence minority students while increasing their reading proficiencies to combat the summer learning loss. The Papitto Foundation has made a grant that funds all administrative expenses so that 100% of your contribution directly funds books and scholarships.
