Reading Partners, Reasor’s, Williams, Bama Companies, and the community
Reading Partners Tulsa will host their fifth annual Books, Brews and BBQ trivia night fundraiser at the Stokely Event Center on Thursday, November 3, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
For the past two years, this event was held virtually, and the organization is finally returning to an in-person setting with Live Event Trivia, arcade games, local brews from Marshall Brewing Company, and barbeque from Albert G’s.
Launched in 2013, Reading Partners Tulsa operates in 23 elementary schools and supports more than 1,000 students.
Event partners include Reasor’s, Williams, Bama Companies and the community.
This will be the first year the event offers plant-based barbeque options from Sando’s Rockin’ Deli. Reading Partners CEO Adeola (“Ola”) Whitney will emcee the event.
Funds raised at this event play a key role in the Reading Partners program, helping to further the mission by recruiting and training volunteers, and assessing and enrolling students in their research-based program helping students achieve measurable literacy growth.
