Luigi's is uniquely Bakersfield. Have you ever wondered who all the people are adorning the walls of Bakersfield's landmark restaurant? Well come out and join us for Sports Night at Luigi's where many of the photos will come to life as Tim Lemucchi shares his knowledge. It is all to raise funds for the Kern Adult Literacy Council and help the organization continue to make significant strides in reducing literacy.

There will also be a no host bar.

Did you know... Over 15% of Kern County adults have not attained a 9th grade literacy level. Over 13.9% of Kern County adults lack the basic literacy skills needed to perform daily job functions. Over 28.1% of Kern County residents do not speak English well enough to function in everyday life. (US Census Bureau 2006-2010 American Community Survey) Health officials have long lamented the gaps in literacy that plague many patients, particularly the poor or poorly educated. Study after study has found that the inability to read or understand basic terms, such as "elevate" or "take on an empty stomach," places patients at high risk for complications and re-hospitalization.
