Literacy benefit to feature well known sports figures

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -

Sports Illustrated cover subject and former Clemson football hero Perry Tuttle and former Washington Redskin Reynaldo Wynn are among the guests appearing at a literacy benefit on Saturday night in Salisbury.

The inaugural Holiday mixer takes place between 6-9 at the Rowan Museum, sponsored by the Tsunami Literacy Development program.

"We want to procure funds so that we can educate children," Chris Sifford told WBTV.  It's a great idea, but there is also a need so that children have a fighting chance in society.  If you can't read, you're going to make bad decisions."

The event includes a silent auction with dozens of items from local businesses, as well as Salisbury;s own NBA star Bobby Jackson, former Livingstone College and NFL player Ben Coates, and Joe Gibbs Racing.
