Literacy Advance of Houston celebrates two of its über volunteers, Larry and Judy Dierker at the Reader Cup. For the 2014 Reader Cup, Literacy Advance celebrates two historic milestones: Literacy Advance was launched 50 years ago in 1964; that same year, legendary Hall of Famer Larry Dierker began his professional baseball career. Larry has donated more than 1,200 tutor hours to Literacy Advance and has helped raise more than half a million dollars through the Reader Cup Celebrity Golf Tournaments over the last 7 years. White Oak Gives Back will again serve as Presenting Sponsor, joined by other sponsors and partners such as Yahoo! SportsRadio 1560. Sean Pendergast, co-host of the popular sports talk show “John & Sean” on 1560AM, will serve as Master of Ceremonies.
The 2014 Reader Cup will be an evening event at TopGolf for guests and players featuring 6-person team golf, buffet-style dinner and cocktails, recognition of the Dierkers, auction packages, team prizes, celebrities and more. All proceeds support the organization’s free Adult Basic Education and English as a Second Language literacy programs and services. $1,000 per 6-person team
