Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Our February 9th Reading Clubs are fast approaching, and we can't make our morning of "Friendship and Family" memorable without your help!

We still need 141 volunteers for the 9th, so please take a moment to join our February 9th Facebook Event. Your friends will be able to see that you're attending the reading clubs, and you can help spread the word by inviting them to join, too. After you join, don't forget to go to our website and sign up with us.

CALLING ALL MUSICIANS!

Every March, musicians visit each school and perform for the kids. We have had a variety of performers from country singers to Korean drumming troupes! If you or someone you know would like to share the gift of music with the kids and volunteers, please reply to this email.

PRIZE PATROL

We're starting to plan this year's events, and we need your help gathering prizes!

Our events are more fun and raise more money if we have great prizes to award, raffle, and/or auction. Big prizes. Little prizes. Serious prizes. Silly prizes. We need them all! Check out our list of prizes from last year's Silent Auction for ideas.

If you have any prizes, or you know where to get them, let us know!

The fun starts this May with our annual Legendary Bingo night, and we'd love to have something fabulous for the grand prize winner -- anything unique or with an autograph is always welcome!

To help you get started, click these links for tips on how to best approach a business or person to donate to our events, and a donation form for the donor to complete.

In the past we have had gift certificates, products, services, and tickets to fun events. If you work at or have a connection with a restaurant, retail store, or for a company with products or services to offer, please help us by asking for a donation to our events.

Please also let Skylar know to whom you reach out so we don't accidentally duplicate Special Events Committee efforts in contacting businesses.

Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you at our February 9th Reading Clubs!

Charlie Orchard, Skylar Lenox, and Katherine Norris
