CELEBRATE OUR 15TH ANNIVERSARY WITH LAMB CHOP AT OUR COMEDY NIGHT & SILENT AUCTION!
Did you know that this May Reading to Kids turns 15?!
Way back in 1999 we started with
20 children and eight volunteers, and now we average
876 children and 367 volunteers every month! This Saturday we expect to give away our
125,000th book to a child!
If you have ever volunteered with us, or are a supporter of children's literacy, please
help us celebrate our
quinceañera on Tuesday, April 29th
at our 15th Anniversary Celebration, Comedy Night & Silent Auction at the Hollywood
This hilarious evening will be hosted by internationally-known
Mallory Lewis and Lamb Chop!
See the puppet you grew up watching as she helps us celebrate with some of her naughtier "After Dark" material!
Tickets are on sale for just $20, with appetizers and dinner available for additional purchase from the new Roadhouse LA at the Improv's showroom menu! The
always-lively Silent Auction will run from 6:30-7:30 pm, with winners announced just before the comedy show starts at 8:00pm. The show will end at 9:30pm.
Lamb Chop will be a handful of sidesplitting comedians
hand-picked by the world famous Hollywood Improv. We don't yet know who our comedians will be, but the Improv guarantees they will be hilarious!
You won't want to miss out on this event and opportunity to celebrate 15 years
Reading to Kids with returning volunteers you may not have seen in
