The Fourth Annual Storybook Ball 2013
AN EVENT HONORING BECKY MCDONALD
The National Center for Children’s Illustrated Literature
October 26, 2013
Save the date for the fourth annual Storybook Ball, benefitting the National Center for Children’s Illustrated Literature! There will be dining, dancing and extraordinary costumes to turn an ordinary fall night into one straight out of a fairytale. This year’s ball will be held October 26th, 2013 and will honor Mrs. Becky McDonald.
Mrs. McDonald has been an instrumental mind behind the creation and expansion of the NCCIL. This year’s event will feature an exclusive exhibit of original art work from Kevin Henkes prepared especially for the ball. Also on display, will be an expanded art auction of original art work by several of our acclaimed NCCIL artists including Ashley Bryan, David Small, Chris Raschka, Robert Sabuda, Peter Sis, Matthew Reinhart, Ed Young, and Paul O. Zelinsky that passionate patrons of children’s literature and the arts won’t want to miss! Proceeds from the art auction will go to creating a special endowment for school tours. The funds will help defray the costs associated with the program including books and supplies.
The Storybook Ball is the only major fundraiser for the NCCIL. All the proceeds from the event will go to support programming that is always free to the public. Programs include docent led elementary grade school tours for over 5,000 children a year, weekly family art activities and a monthly preschool program for younger children.
The board of directors and staff are committed to providing children and families with unique and ongoing opportunities to engage in the enriching world of children’s literature and illustration.
The NCCIL is a truly remarkable institution, and your support is vital to our ongoing efforts to remain a premier venue for children’s illustration artwork.
