Invitation to Room to Read Fundraiser in LA

Hi all!

Jason Reese (Jenn's brother) has organized a big fundraiser for Room To Read (http://www.roomtoread.org) in Los Angeles next Thursday night and you are all invited!

Room To Read is a great organization that helps educate children, especially girls, across the world.

The details are below and a PDF is available at the link below. There is a suggested, but not mandatory, donation listed in the text below and in the PDF. The one in the PDF is wrong, please refer to the text below.


If you have any questions, please feel free to email me and/or Jason Reese <jason@roomtoread.org>. Also, please feel free to forward this along to friends and family.

The event is completely free (even the parking), and there is no obligation to donate. California Pizza Kitchen is dishing out pizzas, North Coast Brewing is serving-up beer, we have an assortment of wine, and even chocolate cream liqueur! There will be four different bands, a silent auction, a speech from Room To Read Founder John Wood, and a gorgeous view that only the rooftop pavilion of the Petersen Automotive
Museum can provide (Wilshire/Fairfax)!

Here's the skinny...
