Books and Vines Dinner and Auction Thursday at Bookwalter

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - The Children's Reading Foundation of the Mid Columbia holds its biggest fundraiser of the year Thursday night.

Bechtel National sponsors Books and Vines at Bookwalter Winery on Columbia Park Trail.

The event starts at 5:30 p.m. with dinner and music in the vineyard, followed by a live auction, when you can bid on rafting trips and cruises, football weekends and fishing trips.

Amy Ward, executive director of the reading foundation, says the dinner and auction raises about $85,000, with all proceeds going to literacy programs.

"This event really helps us fund all of our programs that provide teachers with books, training for parents, and we also get books into the hands of kids that have little or no resources."

Dinner tickets are $100 and includes wine.

For tickets, call the foundation at 222-7323, or e-mail award@readingfoundation.org.

    KENNEWICK: Good news for all of you bargain shoppers out there, Goodwill is opening a brand new store in Kennewick sometime next year.
