Wilson Books from Birth Imagination Dinner

                The Wilson Books from Birth Program is a part of the statewide Imagination Library, the literacy service that provides books to children at no cost to the family. The Wilson County Chapter has only one fundraiser each year, making the Imagination Dinner a very important and exciting event! This year’s Imagination Dinner will be held at the Wilson County Exposition Center on April 11 at 6:30 pm. The event is catered by Sammy B's.

                Groups or business can purchase tables of 8 for $250, and each group will also select a “wacky waiter” for the evening. Each group will decorate their table and attendees according to the theme that they have selected. The waiter will collect “tips” for anything requested by the group and the tips will be added to the fundraising total for the evening. Live and silent auctions will be available throughout the evening, and door prizes will be given out as well.

                The cost to supply books to each child per year is $30, 50% is paid for by the Governor’s Foundation and the remaining 50% is raised by the individual organizations. There are currently about 6,000 children in the program, and close to 13,000 have graduated out of the program. With your help, the Wilson Books from Birth program will continue to grow and have the ability to supply proper reading material to children all over Wilson County.
