y honoring a different letter of the alphabet every year, the Indy Reads Alphabet Affair raises funds to help make Indianapolis 100% literate. Attire for the event is either black tie or a “letter-themed” appropriate costume. This year, we’ll celebrate on April 26th, 2014.
The 2013 Oscar themed celebration was held on April 20th at the Hyatt and was a smashing success! We enjoyed an “O” themed dinner containing osso bucco, omelets, ostrich, oaxaca cheese, and oreo cheesecake. “One Night Stands” and an “Organ Donor” won the costume contest. An Origami artist entertained and Spinshot Entertainment provided a delightful Hollywood themed photobooth for our guests. Our alphabet themed silent auction was great fun and helped us to raise more money to support our programs.
In February, we held an Oscar One-Liners contest at Indy Reads Books. Participants were encouraged to perform their favorite movie lines on stage. WFYI captured the drama on a video that was revealed at the Alphabet Affair.
