Host a Fundraising House Party for Reach Out and Read Illinois


A house party can be a great way to introduce your friends to the work of Reach Out and Read. Gather a group of your friends at your home, introduce them to Reach Out and Read with a video, photos, or other Reach Out and Read materials, and ask them to join you in supporting our mission. A house party can range from a simple, intimate gathering over coffee and tea, to a large dinner party for friends and colleagues.

Hosting a house party is as easy as picking a date and inviting your friends.  Reach Out and Read Illinois Staff will work with you on planning to ensure a successful event.  We will provide speakers, videos, program materials, tables, balloons, and any other items needed for your party.
