You know we have done fundraisers in the past. And you also know we have done a book drive in the past. Then we thought,why not combine both of them. And thus this idea was born.
Paddy's Coffee House will hold a book drive/fundraiser for the Starlight Children's Foundation. Upto Saturday September 24th, there will be Starlight boxes and tables at the coffee house for people to donate books. We would be collecting used and new books. Used books will be taken to Half Price Books, Fremont, to raise funds for the Starlight Children's Foundation. New books will be donated to Starlight Hospital Contacts throughout the greater bay area. The entire fundraiser would last 3 weeks, with a closing reception on Saturday, September 24th from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
To close out the fundraiser, we will have a reception on Saturday, September 24th from 1:00 to 4:00 PM. There will be a book reading by Jan Pitcher, author and artist of Where do the Stars Go?. She will bring her paintings to display at Paddy's during the event and do a reading for the children. After the reading, Turtle Wayne will teach the children how to draw turtles... which we will collaborate and make a book of all the drawings.
