“KICKIN’ ILLITERACY OUT OF
THE RIO GRANDE VALLEY” To Whom It May Concern:
I am extremely excited and honored to have been chosen by The Rio Grande Valley Literacy Center (RGVLC) as the Event Chair for the 9 th Annual RGVLC Boots & Bling Gala. This year our theme will be, “Kickin’ Illiteracy Out of the RGV” Please join me as we honor the communities, supporters and the students of the RGVLC. Tis event will recognize the individuals who have fought the odds and have successfully completed one of the RGVLC programs. While you enjoy your dinner, you will hear the stories of the positive impacts the RGVLC has had in the lives of the students that go through the programs.
The success of these students is all due to the selfless contributions of the RGVLC’s Board of Directors, the staff and event sponsors towards the annual Boots & Bling Gala. Come out and enjoy a fun filled evening of dancing to great country music, a delicious dinner prepared by Chef Daniel at The Radisson and bid on fabulous auction items that contribute 100% to the financial support of the RGVLC. The RGVLC began as the “Pharr Literacy Project” with one building in Pharr, Texas – and has grown to fifteen locations. The purpose for the center is to educate the adult communities in cities throughout the RGV – Edinburg, Pharr, McAllen, Mercedes, Peñitas, San Juan and Weslaco. All locations provide the following programs: GED (both in English & Spanish), English as a secondary language, computer literacy, English Club and U.S. Naturalization Classes.
I humbly ask that you review our Sponsorship Packet and consider being a sponsor for a great cause. Your participation and support to continue educating our communities will be greatly appreciated by not only the RGVLC, but by our community as well.
RGVLC honors and acknowledges our sponsors and their business’. Please consider being a part of this year’s annual event and be a contributor in making a positive difference by Kickin’ Illiteracy out of the Rio Grande Valley.
