Join us for the 16th annual Washtenaw Literacy Driving Literacyevening, at WCC. This year’s fundraiser is a 1920’s Jazz-era theme that promises a toe tapping swell time with a strolling dinner, silent and live auctions and beautiful music from our local musicians. Our annual gin mill will provide critical support for adult literacy in Washtenaw County and we promise no hokum here!
