Dear Hupy and Abraham,
I thank you and the whole Hupy and Abraham team for your generous donation for a table at SHARP Literacy’s 2015 A Novel Event which will be held at the Pfister Hotel on September 28, 2015. We’re very excited to have actor, director and children’s book author Henry Winkler as our keynote speaker.
In 2003, he began writing a series of children’s novels entitled Hank Zipper: The World’s Greatest Underachiever. The books reflect Winkler struggle with learning challenges throughout his education. His mission to inspire children to read coincides with SHARP’s mission to promote early childhood education.
Proceeds from A Novel Event provide materials and resources to support thousands of Milwaukee elementary school students enrolled in the SHARP program in some of our most disadvantaged neighborhoods. Our annual assessment results continue to document significant improvements in our students’ reading, writing and research abilities.
On Behalf of our students, the SHARP Board and staff, we thank you and all our gracious donors and supporters who make our program so successful.
