Our third annual Booktoberfest was held at Lakewood Brewery Company with live music, lots of beer choices, live and silent auctions - and a really big crowd.
On June 6th, 2015, we celebrated a Namaste World Yoga Event at Pranaa Ayurveda Spa & Yoga in Plano. Namaste World! is a global yoga benefit to raise funds for Room to Read. Founded upon the principles of karma (action), seva (service) and vinimaya (reciprocity), Namaste World! is a great opportunity for anyone who loves the practice to give back globally; helping to bring access to quality education to kids across Asia and Africa.

Girl Rising Screening 2014
One girl with courage is a revolution! This incredible movie introduces you to nine girls from nine countries from the developing world who face tremendous challenges to achieve their dreams. Lots of new faces at our screening of this film at the Angelika Film Center in Plano. When leaving, one guest said "every school child should see this film, it is a great reminder of the education opportunities that we enjoy."
