BYOB(ooks) 2023

April 6 @ 5:30 pm 7:30 pm

We’re UNITING for fun, beverages and to ensure ALL children in our community have the caring support and resources they need to achieve student success!

As part of United Way’s Centennial, we are excited to invite you to a special BYOBs (Bring Your Own Books) book drive on Thursday, April 6 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at The Railhouse in East Market at 212 Kelton Avenue. This communitywide event is an opportunity to collect new or gently used books for local children (ages 5-10 years old) to support the Success By Third Grade movement and make a difference for hundreds of local children. We’ve set a bold goal of collecting 1,000 books, and we can’t do it without your help!

In addition to helping us collect 1,000 books for local children, you’ll be able to:

  • Meet special guests Josh Williams, defender for Columbus Crew and Travis Hoewischer, our master of ceremonies for the evening
  • Test your knowledge in a fun-filled trivia contest hosted by Michael Wilkos, United Way of Central Ohio’s Sr. VP of Community Impact
  • Connect with others dedicated to helping children succeed
  • Win great raffle prizes and enjoy a signature cocktail (cash bar)
