The event of the year is almost here!

In March 2017, the Junior Board raised more than $90,000 through the Strikes, Spares, and Splits event and now is your chance to join the most talked about night in town that is making an impact on New York City elementary schools.


The event is hosted by the Junior Board that is made up of 35 emerging leaders who are passionate about the Read Ahead mission. Over 225 New York City young professionals attended this event in 2017! 


An annual night of bowling to help raise $85,000 for Read Ahead!

Bowlers can enjoy two hours of bowling and the chance to take home a raffle or silent auction prize!


To support Read Ahead’s reading-based mentoring programs at P.S. 125 and P.S. 36 in Harlem and P.S. 130 in Chinatown that do not receive funding from a corporate partner. Over 175 students are served at these two programs and funds raised will continue to make that possible.
