WASHINGTON, D.C (May 10, 2016) -- Everybody Wins! DC (EW!DC) and CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield (CareFirst) will kick off the Feeling Good About Me! Healthy Month Initiative this week! EW!DC is honored to receive a $10,000 grant from CareFirst to host this wellness and literacy campaign in all 11 of its Power Lunch programs in low-income elementary schools across the Washington Metropolitan Area. All Power Lunch programs will receive health education books for their book carts. Students in four schools- Amidon-Bowen Elementary, Garrison Elementary, Ludlow Taylor Elementary, and Marie Reed Elementary- will also receive a health education book to take home to add to their personal libraries.
Everybody Wins! DC (EW!DC) has been selected by Coaching for Literacy (CFL) as the beneficiary of their Assistant Coach Program. CFL has partnered with the Washington Wizards to offer this unique philanthropic experience. The Wizards provide two premium tickets to Coaching for Literacy for two particular games. CFL then gives Wizards fans the opportunity to make a donation to local literacy efforts in exchange for the premium tickets. The donors enjoy an amazing experience with their favorite team and CFL allocates the funds to its local literacy partner – Everybody Wins! D.C. The Wizards will host CFL’s Assistant Coach Program twice this season- on January 16th and again on March 23rd.
On Thursday, November 19th, Everybody Wins! DC (EW! DC) hosted our Ninth Annual Lawyers for Literacy Trivia Challenge at Kirkland & Ellis LLP. Thirteen teams from many of the area’s leading law firms competed to win title of Litterae Magister (Master of Literacy). DC Quizzomaster, Neal Racioppo, asked a range of challenging questions on subjects ranging from history, sports, and pop culture, to business incorporation laws.
EW!DC’s Board Chairman, Mark Director, also a partner at Kirkland & Ellis, kicked off the evening by saying, “This event always brings fun, but vigorous, competition in support of a great cause. My colleagues in the [legal] field will understand that taking time to read with a child will be the best hour of your week.”
