Hobee's all-day fundraiser benefits Project Read

Hobee's California restaurant in Town & Country Village shopping center in Palo Alto will hold a fundraiser to benefit Menlo Park Library's Project Read program from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday, June 10.

Customers who bring in a flier announcing the fundraiser will have 20 percent of their bill donated to the library's adult literacy program.

The flier is available at the library, or can be printed from the Project Read website. Go to and click on Upcoming Events in the right-hand column, then click on the flier.

Project Read-Menlo Park matches volunteer tutors with adults who need help learning to read and write. Although the program receives a small amount of funding from the city, it increasingly must rely on funding from foundations and private donors.

Established in 1985, Project Read-Menlo Park has helped more than 2,000 adults in the local community improve their lives through literacy.

Go to or call 330-2525 for more information.
