Follow the Yellow Brick Road to Reading
Little Readers Rock is a Junior League of Little Rock campaign aimed at improving the proficiency of young readers in our community. The ratio of books to children in targeted low-income households in Arkansas is one book per 300 children. This campaign strives to create excitement for reading early on by getting books into the hands and homes of children. Little Readers Rock is committed to helping children experience all the places reading can take them.
Guests will enjoy a full meal, beverages, and dancing. There will be a silent auction, opportunities to sponsor a dog still at the shelter, or participate in a "wine pull". Proceeds from this event help offset the costs of heartworm treatment and other special medical needs for dogs from Arkansas high-kill shelters. This is always a fun, laid-back event. Casual attire!
Rescue Road is a 100% volunteer-run, shelter-free, foster based, all breed rescue that was established in September 2012. They are dedicated to saving abandoned, neglected, and/or abused dogs from local high-kill shelters. Their four main shelter partners include West Memphis, Stuttgart, Pine Bluff, and Hazen, and they have dramatically decreased the euthanasia rates at those shelters (80-90% down to less than 1%). Rescue Road also helps with hoarding cases from time to time. Rescue Road does not discriminate on the basis of age, pre-existing medical conditions, or breed. Through our efforts, they have been able to save more than 4,200 dogs in 5.5 years.
Crawfish, chicken, drinks and all the fixins will be served. :)
