Laugh Today, So a Child Can Read Tomorrow

Child Care Resource Center is pleased to announce its 3rd Annual Laughs4Literacy, a fundraising comedy night, will be held at the JetHawks Stadium on Thursday June 28th, 2018. Experience the new Golden Beer Garden, laugh and enjoy a meal while raising funds to promote literacy in the Antelope Valley community.

This year’s comedians: Jonnae Thompson, Flobo Boyce, Luz Pazos and James Uloth will be rocking the mic. With guaranteed hilarity, these four comedians will entertain you for hours! Tickets are $35 per person or two for $50. Every ticket includes admission, one ballpark meal, and one fountain drink or beer.

All proceeds from this event will place BOOKS directly in the hands of young children in the Antelope Valley Community. According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). California is one of 13 states where students’ reading proficiency is below the national average. Within these statistics the numbers are even worse for low-income families.

CCRC believes in the power of literacy and that every child should have access to books and own their own book. In 2009, we launched a literacy campaign, What a Difference a BOOK Makes, to collect and distribute 100,000 books a year! We know by providing children access to literature and informing parents of the benefits of reading to children, we can have a tremendous impact on the family. In providing these basic resources, we are helping Antelope Valley families succeed.
