The Second Annual Milk+Bookies Story Time Celebration will take place on Sunday, March 20.
Attending will be celebrity guests such as Chris Pine, Jack Black, Julie Bowen (“Modern Family”), Jennie Garth, Jonah Hill, Jeff Probst, Josh Holloway (“Lost”), Maya Rudolph, Sarah Chalke (“Mad Love”), Jason Biggs (“Mad Love”), Nathan Fillion (“Castle”), Stefan Lassard (Dave Matthews Band), Allison Brie (“Community”) and many more.
Families will be able to enjoy their favorite childhood stories in the celebrity reading room, create story-inspired arts & crafts, photo flipbooks and of course, eat milk and cookies. There will be a giant “bookstore” where families can select books, inscribe them and donate them using Milk + Bookies to distribute these books to children that do not have access to books of their own. This year’s book donation recipients will be Los Angeles foster kids who are serviced through the Westside children’s Center and The Children’s Bureau.
Milk + Bookies is a nationwide charitable organization that inspires children to give back, using books as its currency. The organization facilitates opportunities for children to raise book donations and give back to their peers who do not have access to books of their own by providing them the tools to host small events nationwide. Milk + Bookies combines two essential and worthwhile efforts: service learning and literacy promotion.
The event will take place at Skirball Cultural Center, 2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles. More information can be found here.
