Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County invites music lovers and friends of literacy to an evening of jazz, wine tastings, hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction on Friday, June 24, at the elegant Hilton Garden Inn, 235 Hoosick St in Troy.

Featured performers are Sonny and Perley. Sonny Daye and Perley Rousseau are a husband and wife duo who perform the timeless standards of the Great American Songbook such as the works of Irving Berlin, George and Ira Gershwin, and Cole Porter, as well as the Bossa Nova melodies of Antonio Carlos Jobim.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; a silent auction begins at 7. Reservations can be made by calling 274-8526 or online at www.lvorc.org. Tickets are $30 in advance, $40 at the door. A table for six is $150. All proceeds will benefit Literacy Volunteers.

In Rensselaer County, at least 30,000 teens and adults can’t complete a job application, write a letter to a child’s school or read the directions on a bottle of cough syrup.

Offer Hope… Offer Reading.

A friend of mine volunteers at Peaceful Acres Horses, a horse rescue sanctuary, and has put out a challenge to collect $5 worth of recyclable cans or bottles this week that will be used to purchase hay.

This all-volunteer sanctuary rescues horses from kill pens and horses who have suffered from neglect by their owners.

If you have any cans or bottles at home or in your office and would like to donate them for this worthy challenge, I will be happy to pick them up from your office during lunch or after work.

I’m including a link to the PAH site for those interested in more information about the sanctuary’s mission, volunteer and adoption programs. Here is the link: http://www.peacefulacreshorses.com/.

Thank you,
Joe Bode
