On Aug. 1, Cranfill Sumner & Hartzog LLP (Cranfill Sumner) proudly served as a table sponsor for the Cape Fear Literacy Council’s (CFLC) 4th Annual Literacy Luncheon.  The luncheon, held at the Pine Valley United Methodist Church, featured CFLC’s Group Readers performing selections from Alexander McCall Smith’s The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency and a silent auction.

Proceeds from the luncheon supported the CFLC mission to provide individual literacy services in the Cape Fear Region. CFLC provides free and confidential 1-to-1 and small classroom instruction to adults working to improve their reading, writing spelling, English communication and math skills. For more information on CFLC, visit the organization’s website.

On Aug. 16, CFLC will hold a dinner to kick off a capital campaign to build an administrative annex.  The new annex will help increase CFLC’s tutoring services by 75 percent.

Emily Goodman, an attorney in the Wilmington office of Cranfill Sumner, serves on the CFLC board of directors.
