A Literary Feast Looking for Hosts

Dear Capitol Hill Public Schools Parent Organization members,

All of our schools have benefited from the generosity of the Capitol Hill Community Foundation. The Foundation works hard to raise money that they then use to fund grants to support our schools and community. A Literary Feast is one of the important fundraisers of the Capitol Hill Community Foundation. The committee planning A Literary Feast is looking for hosts (see information below). Please share with your school communities. It would be great to get more parents to host/co-host dinners this year! If anyone is interested in hosting/co-hosting, please contact Todd.Cymrot@gmail.com.

Can it really be that time already?

The Literary Feast is Oct 27th, but we need to find our hosts NOW…

We’re reaching out to our generous prior hosts and board members first to see if we can round up a core of hosts who can help support our grants to neighborhood schools and spread the good word about the Capitol Hill Community Foundation.

Although the event is months away, planning is happening NOW, and we go to press with our print materials in a few weeks. If you are interested in hosting, please let us know this coming week.

A few reminders about hosting:

  • We need homes that can fit a minimum of eight guests… it does not have to be sit down (buffet is ok), but the more, the merrier!
  • This is a book-themed party, not a book discussion, so don’t worry too much about the book selection. Many people start with a menu idea and then choose a book that fits (like to cook Indian? How about The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri).
  • You’ll be cooking dinner, but we’re looking for hosts, not chefs… it is important that you be able to spend time with your guests. Some folks partner with friends, so someone can always be mingling and not stuck in the kitchen.
  • Finally, we’re looking for a wide selection of food options (do you like preparing vegetarian food? are you a master at the grill?), AND we’d love to find some handicapped accessible homes… know anyone with a ground floor entrance who’d be willing to host?

If you are interested in hosting, have questions, or want to help with this event in any other way please contact Todd.Cymrot.
