A Celebration of Literacy
Benefiting Literacy Achieves
(Founded as Vickery Meadow Learning Center)
The 2019 Wings of Spring gala will take place Monday, April 1 in the exquisite Stern Chapel at Temple Emanu-El.
The evening will include a cocktail reception and dinner buffet followed by the Piano Battle featuring internationally acclaimed pianists Andreas Kern and Paul Cibis.
The Piano Battle show is divided into several rounds, each featuring a certain musical style. The duo will go head-to-head, enchanting the audience with a variety of classical pieces. Our audience will be the judge with everyone invited to vote on the pianists’ performances and eventually crown the winner.
It promises to be a fun show with lots of audience engagement!
Our Honorary Chair
We are delighted that community leader and longtime Literacy Achieves supporter Gayle Johansen will serve as Honorary Chair.
While balancing family life with a successful real estate career, Gayle still dedicates time every week to her students at Literacy Achieves. Her passion to make a difference is inspired by her own father, who with his mother and sister, was returned to Poland three times before being allowed entry at Ellis Island in 1914.
