“I believe that reading does this – it just takes local support and the drive of the Columbus Literacy Council.”

TextbookRush teams up with the Columbus Literacy Council in their annual Alphabet Attractions black-tie gala, a night dedicated to supporting Columbus literacy programs that will help students and adults through reading and workplace development.

On Saturday, April 22, TextbookRush, through a generous donation, will be in attendance at the annual gala as the Columbus Literacy Council celebrates 47 years of service. TextbookRush, a Columbus based ecommerce company, views this as a great opportunity to help the community through expanding and growing programs offered by the Columbus Literacy Council.

“It’s important to me to support our community in literacy programs and encourage students to reach a higher potential and self-confidence,” said Phil Smyres, founder and CEO of TextbookRush. “I believe that reading does this – it just takes local support and the drive of the Columbus Literacy Council.”

This one-night event, created by the Columbus Literacy Council, is hosted by ABC6/Fox28 newscaster Kurt Ludlow. It will be held on Saturday, April 22 at 6:00pm at The Jessing Center at The Pontifical College Josephinum. 7625 North High Street, Columbus, Ohio 43235
