Each spring, EWDC hosts Read to Deam, our largest event of the year. The evening celebrates our students, our impact, and the people who make it all possible. Read to Dream also raises the funds needed to bring Power Readers, StoryTime, and The Book Project to thousands of children at no cost to families or school partners.
