y celebrating a different letter of the alphabet every year, the Indy Reads Alphabet Affair raises funds to help make Indianapolis 100% literate.
This year, we’ll celebrate the letter “P” on April 26th, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency.
We would be pleased if you could persuade your company to sponsor this premiere event!

Perhaps you’d like to purchase your tickets a bit prematurely? That would be most prudent of you.
It will be a party with a purpose! This year we will celebrate the letter “P” with a Phenomenal Party in Paradise! As you arrive, you will “walk the plank” to begin your evening of fun. During the event, we will present our Literacy Leaders Hall of Fame Award to the Community Foundation of Boone County and the Duke Energy Foundation for their powerful and positive support of Indy Reads.
