What is the Alphabet Affair?
Alphabet Affair is an annual Indy Reads event that started with the letter ‘A’ in 1999. We’ve made our way through the alphabet and reached the letter ‘R’ in 2016! This wordy event is our largest fundraising initiative of the year and directly supports our literacy work. Every year, guests attend a dinner where the menu aligns with the letter of the year, a live and silent auction filled with amazing items and experiences, and entertaining entertainment. Guests are invited to dress up in costumes that celebrated the featured letter! The Indy Reads Alphabet Affair raises funds to help make Indianapolis 100% literate.
On April 23rd, 2016, we celebrated the letter ‘R’ by hosting the Rowdiest, Raddest, Righteous Race-themed party in town! There were almost 300 individuals in attendance who helped raise over $70,000!
We also set the Guinness World Record for Most People Singing the Alphabet in a Room Together!
Thank you to everyone who participated and made this event a radiant success!
