Our first-annual Wine, Swine & Swill event supports adult literacy in the New River Valley.
We've been teaching people to read for years; now we'll teach you about wine! Guests will experience international, national and regional wines, paired with catered food from each region, while enjoying local vendors and live music.
It's a date night for a great cause!

The Literacy Volunteers of the New River Valley (LVNRV) mission is to foster support, advocate for, and instruct adults in the New River Valley who seek opportunities to achieve greater independence through literacy.
We are a community-based literacy program that provides free one-to-one or small group tutoring (Basic Literacy, ESOL, Digital Literacy, Basic Math) at a location and time that is convenient to both the learner and the student. We are a United Way/United Fund Partner Agency and an affiliate member of ProLiteracy.
More than 20 percent of adults read at or below a fifth grade level - far below the level needed to earn a living wage.
