A huge thank you to our 2016 presenting sponsor:

Our inaugural Tell Me a Story event was a huge success!
A BIG thank you to all who attended and made it possible to get books to children in need.
Here's a recap of our 2016 Tell Me a Story evening:


Captivating storytellers

Chris Williams, B. Frayn Masters, Courtenay Hameister, Tod Kelly, Santi Holly, Andrew Dickson and Chelsea Cain had us laughing, crying and thinking deeply about the meaning of books in our lives. 

Our wonderful community of supporters

Nearly 200 guests attended, some were close friends of The Children's Book Bank, while others were new to The Children's Book Bank. Attendees enjoyed powerful stories, a competitive silent auction, pizza, beverages and great company.




More books for children in need!

Over $22,000 was raised-- that means another 1,000 children received books that spark their imagination; build curiosity and excitement for learning and create wonderful opportunities for parent/child bonding.
