A Celebration of Story, a benefit and auction for WITS,  will feature award-winning poet and former WITS student Mark Doty, and honor Karl Kilian, Director of Programs at the Menil Collection, for his continued support of WITS and literary arts education.

The event, chaired by Lizzie and Scott Fletcher, features a silent auction, dinner, a spoken word performance by WITS students and a talk by Mark Doty. Funds raised from the evening help WITS send writers into school and community classrooms and inspire the imagination and creativity of more than 20,000 children throughout Houston.
