More than 200 people attended the Chamber event and, according to Rizzoli’s General Manager Kyle Rizzoli, “People had a good time and also were able to support a great cause. I was excited to find out it brought in 30 books. Every child should be given the tools to be successful, and I am grateful we have the Raising A Reader Program in SLO County.”
Raising A Reader is an early literacy program that supplies simple training and preschool books to low-income families in our community.
