If you live in the Treasure Valley, we hope you've heard of Learning Lab! On February 5th, they became our very first Virtual Event of 2021, and it was quite the hit! Learning Lab Idaho is celebrating its 30th year of providing adult and family education programs across the Valley, and we were thrilled to support their fundraising endeavors. Their virtual Lunch for Literacy event included a book-themed online auction, messages from former guest authors, and a spotlight interview between Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Anthony Doerr and his friend, actor, and author, Jamie Lee Curtis! As you can imagine, this engaging afternoon drew quite the crowd, and the organization flew right past their fundraising goals while still on the air. We are so proud of their success, and we look forward to hosting many more Virtual Events this year -- this is just the beginning!
