On Tuesday, December 14th in New York City, one hundred guests gathered at the Tory Burch boutique in the Meatpacking District for the Making Books Sing 2010 Holiday Party. Guests shopped, socialized, sipped champagne and sampled cupcakes by Cupcake Suite/Get Em Girls. Hosted by New York City television and WBLS radio personality Egypt Sherrod, the evening doubled as the launch of “Egypt’s Give Back Tour,” a personal volunteer initiative for Sherrod who donated her time in support of students at Intermediate School 292K in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. The students will receive complimentary tickets to the world premiere of Making Books Sing’s new family musical, SKY BOYS: The Building of the Empire State Building.

Making Books Sing is a New York City based nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting children’s literacy and social development through theatre productions and arts-in-education programs. Twenty percent of sales during the holiday party will be donated to Making Books Sing to support their work in schools and on the stage.
