You are invited to Purl Purl Read!
Parkdale Project Read’s 30th Anniversary Knit-a-thon Fundraiser
On Saturday, January 21st, 2017, join the Parkdale Project Read community for a festival of knitting and community fun!
This fundraising event will be a day of activities for everyone, including an amazing silent auction, sale of knitting “goodies” – books, yarn and needles. There will be a ball winder free to use and lots of opportunities to join a community of knitters who are fundraising for PPR, doing what they love…knitting all day!
All proceeds raised from knit-a-thon pledges, knitting goodies, and raffle tickets will go directly to support PPR, an amazing program celebrating 30 years of literacy work in the heart of Parkdale’s vibrant community!
