Moore County Literacy Council
… is a 501(c)(3) organization, formed in 1987 by a few committed individuals. The founders recognized the crippling effect of illiteracy and low literacy on individuals, families and communities, and how teaching reading and writing can open the universe for those who desire to grow and prosper.
Almost 80% of our funding comes from right here in Moore County, including grants from United Way and Moore County, both of which are funded by local citizens, and from our annual major fundraiser, in 2016 Reading Rocks. Many remember the Annual Spelling Bee for Literacy in past years. Our solid, generous base of supporters – individuals, service organizations, churches, businesses, local foundations – helps us achieve our vision, which is to reverse the debilitating consequences of adult low literacy and illiteracy by offering free tutoring services to adults.

The Reading Rocks Chairs
Reading Rocks Fundraiser
The Reading Rocks Auction will be held on Thursday, August 25th, at 6:00 pm, at the Fair Barn in Pinehurst.
The event will be the culmination of our incredibly successful Reading Rocks fundraiser.
Over 50 chairs have been turned into works of art by our talented Moore County artistic community. Our artists range from children, to professional artists, educators and faculty members, retired artists and hobbyists.
The Auction at the Fair Barn will be catered by Mark Elliott of Elliotts on Linden with heavy hors d’oeuvres and beer and wine being served. Attendees will see both children’s rocking chairs and adult rocking chairs available for auction.
Tickets are $75 apiece, and all proceeds from chairs, tickets and auction sales will go to Moore County Literacy Council, making them tax deductible (to the full extent of the law). Tables for eight can be purchased for $500 (just indicate who you’ll be seated with). Click on the American Patriot chair below to order your tickets.
Moore County is rockin’ this summer as we conclude the most successful fundraiser in our history!
