The Cape Fear Literacy Council's
2019 Literacy Luncheon
TUESDAY, JUNE 25, 2019
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM, Pine Valley United Methodist Church
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, June 25th, for the
Cape Fear Literacy Council’s 10th Annual Literacy Luncheon featuring student presenters and special guest, prize-winning novelist and screenwriter, Mark Ethridge.
Luncheon guests will also have the opportunity to hear from students whose lives have been changed through their experiences at CFLC and enjoy a performance from the CFLC Readers' Theater, a popular interactive learning program in which performers read from a script to interpret a text for an audience.
For the 2019 Luncheon, Cape Fear Literacy Council is very pleased to announce the receipt of a $25,000 “Challenge Grant” from Live Oak Bank. Live Oak Bank supports our fundraising efforts at this milestone charity event and has generously agreed to match every sponsorship and donation for the Luncheon, up to $25,000, doubling the impact of each investment in the Literacy Council!

WE ENVISION A COMMUNITY IN WHICH ALL ADULTS HAVE
THE LITERACY SKILLS THEY NEED TO SUCCEED.
While most of us have strong literacy skills that we take for granted, thousands of adults in our community don’t have these skills and their lives are impacted in profound ways.
An estimated 14,000+ adults in New Hanover County function at a “below basic” literacy level
47,000 more functioning at a “basic” literacy level
12,700 people in New Hanover County live in a household where a language other than English is spoken
These neighbors struggle daily to fill out job applications, use maps, understand information from a school or doctor’s office, and perform countless other tasks. They want – and need – to develop their skills to succeed in their jobs, take better care of their families and contribute more fully to their community.
Cape Fear Literacy Council offers programs in:
English as a Second Language (ESL)
GED and test preparation
In supporting these programs, you support the adult learner and your own neighborhood. Research-based statistics show that illiteracy affects the costs of social services and has a direct effect on your taxes and your community. Click here to learn more.
