Pig Out to Support the Triangle Literacy Council

The Triangle Literacy Council hosts its biggest event of the year Oct. 10!

The fifth annual Read to Succeed BBQ Feed will be held from 4 to 7 p.m., at the Lake Wheeler Waterfront Conference Center at Lake Wheeler Park.

This event is a way to spend an afternoon with family and friends while aiding the Triangle Literacy Council in raising money to fund its reading and writing programs.

“The Read to Succeed BBQ Feed is the Triangle Literacy Council’s biggest fundraiser of the year, used to support the free literacy and life skills programs we offer to the community,” said Christina Wall, the Triangle Literacy Council’s community outreach and development coordinator.

“The funds we raise from this event will help equip adults, youth and families in the Triangle with the skills they need to improve their lives and become more productive members of society. The event is always a blast, filled with barbecue, beer, bluegrass and bidding in our silent auction.”

The Read to Succeed BBQ Feed will include a meal provided by Danny’s Bar-B-Que, entertainment by the Kudzu Ramblers and a lakeside silent auction offering prizes from spa treatments to restaurant gift cards and more.

“We are really excited about the items this year, including everything from local artwork to weekend getaways,” said Wall. “We have been working so hard to put on a fun and purposeful event for the community.”

Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for children 12 years old or younger. Purchase tickets online at triangleliteracy.org/events/purchase-your-tickets-now-2015-read-to-succeed-bbq-feed/ or over the phone at (919) 787-5559.

The Triangle Literacy Council offers reading, writing and life skills programs for adults, families and at-risk youth.

Literacy programs such as Adult Basic Education, learning English as a Second Language and one-on-one tutoring are geared toward adults who are in need of basic reading skills.

Another literacy program offered is called Project LIFT, which gives families who have children under the age of 5 who do not know English as their first language the opportunity to grow in their relationships with each other through learning activities.

Other programs, like the Life Skills Program, offer adults or adolescents the opportunity to grow within themselves from learning about civic participation to gaining confidence through conversation.
