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 112 Alaska communities. This hallmark event raises public awareness of the impact early literacy has on a child’s educational development and Best Beginnings’ work.
2018 marks the 4th anniversary of this very special event hosted by First Lady Donna Walker, former First Ladies, 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. This year’s event was all the more inspiring as it coincides with the delivery of the 2 millionth book to a child in Alaska enrolled in Imagination Library. You can watch the presentation online here.
