The 28th Annual Literacy Ball – A Novel Affair 2021
A No-Show Event
We are “Clearing the Dance Floor for Literacy” this year with our special “no-show” event to ensure the safety of every supporter during these unprecedented times. With its impact on businesses and families, we’re suspending our dance for 2021, making all donations for this year’s fundraising campaign 100% tax deductible.
The annual Literacy Ball is the primary fundraiser for Barrow County’s Adult Literacy Program. Your tax-deductible sponsorships and contributions will support Barrow County’s adult learners, programs and activities throughout the year, including GED test scholarships, transportation and daycare, beginning new classes, hiring staff and purchasing equipment. ALB also provides free high school equivalency classes, English as Second Language classes, and Citizenship classes across Barrow County, including the Barrow County Detention Center. Adult Literacy Barrow has supported over 14,000 students since 1993.
You may choose to support the work of Adult Literacy Barrow through sponsorship of the Literacy Ball or a donation as a Friend of Literacy.
