BOSTON (May 11, 2017) — Jumpstart hosted our annual Scribbles to Novels gala at the Royal Sonesta Boston, featuring authors Dick Lehr, Malcolm Mitchell, Erica Ferencik, and M.T. Anderson. Our Corps member, AJ Ryan, shared his heartfelt Jumpstart story, and we heard from our featured authors in an author panel moderated by Andre Dubus III. The passion and excitement for early literacy was felt throughout the night, and the Jumpstart staff, board, and Corps members present left the room re-energized by the enthusiasm of our supporters.
Thanks to the generosity in the room, our guests and sponsors raised over $530,000 for Jumpstart’s work. Your gift to Jumpstart helps bring high-quality early education and literacy programs to children living in under-resourced communities. We cannot express enough how appreciative we are!
