Ride For Reading, a Nashville area non-profit organization founded by avid cyclists with a goal to provide books to children of low income families, is hosting a benefit concert on Friday, March 26 at 3rd and Lindsley from 6-9 p.m. The evening will feature performances from singer/songwriters Sean McConnell, Megan James and Ashley Ray and is designed to bring awareness to the organization. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door and can be purchased here. All proceeds go to benefit Ride for Reading.
“This is Ride For Reading’s biggest fundraiser of the year,” says founder Mathew Portell. “We’re so excited to be able to share a night of great music for the sake of literacy in our community. It’s going to be a great night.”
Ride for Reading, established in 2008 by dedicated and determined 4th grade teacher and avid bicyclist Portell, will distribute books to Paragon Elementary School in Nashville via bicycle the morning of the benefit concert.
