RACINE — The Racine Literacy Council’s annual fundraiser will be an Open Door Event from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday, March 9, at Memorial Hall, 72 Seventh St.
With last year’s rebranding, RLC has adopted the motto “Opening the Door to Education.” In keeping with the spirit of this idea, RLC has incorporated this concept of open doors into its annual fundraising event.
Guest speaker is Brian Niznansky, WTMJ4 meteorologist and Racine native. There will also be a sit-down dinner and silent auction. To preview items up for bid, log onto www.32auctions.com/RLC2019. Online bids on may be submitted through Friday, March 8.
Entertainment will be provided by the MadHatters, a nationally recognized collegiate a cappella group from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. First created in 1997, the MadHatters have grown significantly in popularity in the a cappella community, having released several albums and having received several awards. The MadHatters traditionally feature nine to 12 vocalists and one vocal percussionist.
Tickets cost $50 each or $95 a couple. Tables of eight are available for $350. For tickets, go to http://racineliteracy.com/open-door-event or call 262-632-9495. Tickets can also be purchased at Borzynski’s Farm & Floral Market, Dimple’s Imports and Mocha Lisa Coffee Shop.
