What is Read to Me Tea?

Did you know that
March is Social Worker Month, April is Occupational Therapy Month, and May is Better Hearing and Speech Month?

To celebrate, CTC (which provides special education services to West Michigan schools) hosts an art contest that starts in February and ends with an event in May. Our clients don’t get many opportunities to be celebrated for their achievements; therefore, this event is an important opportunity for us to recognize their hard work and creativity.

We’re so excited to hold our 18th annual Read To Me Tea celebration this year at The Sweet House Foundation in Grand Rapids, MI on May 13th, 2024! We’re so excited to see you again this year, to applaud how much our clients’ skills and talents have grown since our last event.

Check out our blog, image gallery, and art submissions from last year’s edition of Read to Me Tea!

If you’d like to help us make our 2024 event a success, please check out our Virtual Book Drive in partnership with Books by the Bushel.

Show Your Support

In 2005, Read to Me Tea was launched as a celebration of our clients, but more importantly, a place for families and caregivers to connect with legislators and community leaders in an environment they may not have access to normally.

Throughout the first part of the year, our clients both in the clinic and in schools create artwork that is then displayed during the event. Artists are then able to share their art with their families and other attendees.  

Read to Me Tea is an important advocacy event for our families. Caregivers have the ability to talk to, ask questions, and advocate for their families and children in a relaxed and safe environment.  

Thank you to these generous sponsors who helped make this event happen:

Warner Norcross + Judd

Independent Bank 

Hooper Printing

Bit Baking Co.

To our dedicated elected officials who spent invaluable face-to-face time with their constituents:

Wendy Nystrom, Senator Debbie Stabenow office

Abby Klomparens, the West Michigan Regional Coordinator for Senator Gary Peters

State Representative Luke Meerman

State Representative John Fitzgerald

State Representative Carol Glanville

… and to the amazing Sweet House Foundation for providing us a beautiful space for the event!
