Louisville, Colo., January 23, 2012 – Impact on Education, the Louisville-based nonprofit that awards thousands in Classroom Innovation Grants to teachers in the Boulder Valley School District, invites the community to celebrate children’s literacy while enjoying great music, food and chocolate at its inaugural Valentine’s Celebration event called Love is a Story.
The event, which is co-sponsored by Assorted Goods & Candy and Sassafras Photography, will be held from 7-11 pm on Saturday, Feb. 11 at the Louisville Center for the Arts, 801 Grant Ave., in downtown Louisville.
