The First Ladies’ Tea is an annual fundraising event held in September that provides critical support for Imagination Library in Alaska, which sends a free book each month in the mail to more than 18,000 Alaska children from birth to age 5 across 116 Alaska communities. This hallmark event raises public awareness of the impact early literacy has on a child’s educational development and Best Beginnings’ work.
2019 marks the 5th anniversary of this very special event hosted by First Ladies of Alaska, and many co-hosts who are determined to see Alaska children continue to receive high-quality books at no cost to their families through Imagination Library.
