CELEBRATING 10 YEARS OF STORYBOOK BALL

United Through Reading’s 10th Annual Storybook Ball will bring together corporate executives, senior military leaders, long-time supporters, and military families in celebration of the families who have forged meaningful connections during deployment or separation due to military assignment through the read-aloud experience. A centerpiece of United Through Reading’s presence in San Diego, CA, the black-tie event on November 10th at the elegant and newly renovated Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel will raise critical funds to ensure all military families can benefit from this important connection, no matter the distance between them. Enjoy an evening with world-class food, luxury silent & live auction, and riveting stories from our keynote speakers.
