“SAVOR Newport Beach 2023” will benefit The Literacy Project which serves Orange County’s most vulnerable children with the gift of literacy at “no cost” to both the child and the school. This public event’s proceeds will support struggling students who are performing far below basics in reading skills and destined to be functionally illiterate. For as little as $100 per child, The Literacy Project can change the trajectory of a student’s life when they master basic phonetic skills and develop a lifelong love for reading and learning.

The Literacy Project was founded in 2009 by Sue Grant and has served more than 10,500 underserved students from low-income families. Under her leadership, Grant has helped raise more than $4.8 million to provide a reading program at “no cost” to both the child and school within four states including California, which has the lowest literacy rate in the U.S. The nonprofit’s 30-hour program significantly improves a child’s ability to read, averaging skill increases from 76% to 129%. The agency has also donated $1.92 million worth of reading games to 47,250 family members, promoting family literacy.

Newport Beach Country Club is located at One Clubhouse Drive, Newport Beach.
