The Center of Hope Family Services (CHFS) hosted “GLAM 2010,” a luncheon and style show, to raise money for its Children’s Defense Fund Freedom School.
Freedom School, which has operated in Toledo since 2007, provides a literacy-focused summer and after-school curriculum. The school has successfully helped more than 150 individuals ages 5 to 14 years old.
According to a news release, children who attend CHFS Freedom Schools score higher on standardized reading achievement tests and improve their reading skills more than children not enrolled in the after-school program. Additionally, parents have reported their children having a greater love of learning.
“GLAM 2010” featured prizes for the most glamorous, unique, elegant, fabulous and best vintage hats worn.
The luncheon took place April 24 at the Toledo Botanical Garden Terrace Room, 5403 Elmer Drive.
