Reading Is Fundamental’s Where the Wild Things Are Gala

Reading Is Fundamental's Where the Wild Things Are Gala

If I had $500 lying around…

“let the wild rumpus start!” says Max in WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE, the iconic and award winning children’s book by the late Maurice Sendak. Well, as it happens, at RIF we are about to do just that – and we would like you to join us!

On Thursday, May 9 from 6:30 – 10:00p.m., RIF will present an extraordinary event celebrating Maurice Sendak’s beloved and sometimes deliciously feared (!) story about Max and his journey to where the wild things live. Transforming the Four Seasons Washington, DC into an island of creatures, monsters, and otherwise scary beasts, RIF along with our corporate partners and donors will celebrate all of the wild things as they “roar their terrible roars and gnash their terrible teeth and roll their terrible eyes and show their terrible claws.” And, of course, raise funds to prepare and motivate children to read by delivering free books and literacy resources to those children and families who need them most.

Please join RIF and Max for a adventurous evening of cocktails, dinner, special guests, elaborate silent and live auction items and packages, a Monster Chocolate Bash dessert reception, and a special mix of interesting book lovers and readers from across the country. And of course, a bed time story …

Black Tie optional
