  • 2018 Scribbles to Novels – Boston

    Wednesday, May 9|6:00 pm - 9:00 pm at Royal Sonesta Boston

    Join Jumpstart on Wednesday, May 9th, at our Scribbles to Novels gala, which will once again be held at the Royal Sonesta. This unique, literature-focused event unites prominent authors, civic and corporate leaders, and Jumpstart supporters to underscore the importance of literature in young children’s lives and reinforce Jumpstart’s vision — to ensure every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed. In addition, attendees have the opportunity to hear inspiring, impactful stories from Jumpstart volunteers and leaders. Please contact Nick Culik regarding sponsorships or questions at nick.culik@jstart.org. I cannot attend, but would like to support Jumpstart’s programs. Ian & Caitlin Blasco Dave Humphrey...
