On Sunday, March 18th, Team Reading to Kids collectively ran 360 miles
at the 2018 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon! Head over towards the bottom of their website
to see a slideshow
of our runners before, during, and after the marathon.
They have now raised $15,300, and you can still donate to their fundraising pages to help them reach their $20,000 goal!
It's back! On Wednesday, May 2nd, join Reading to Kids
Legendary Bingo at
Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood!
The drinks are strong, the drag queen bingo is "R" rated,
and seating is limited, so be sure to reserve your seat in advance!
If you've been before you know it's a blast. If you haven't, click here for a video of one of our previous winners to see what you've been missing!
Please click the image above for a flyer in .PDF format, and forward it to anyone you know who may be interested in going to our Legendary Bingo Night. You can also print out the flyer and post it wherever many people are likely to see it, perhaps with a note that you are going and inviting others to join you.
WHEN: Wednesday, May 2, 7pm - 9pm
WHERE: Hamburger Mary's Restaurant
8288 Santa Monica Blvd.
West Hollywood, CA 90046
Cost: $20 suggested donation (cash only, please!), which includes 9 regular bingo games and one grand prize bingo game with fantastic prizes!
Legendary Bingo is very popular and there is limited seating available. Plan to arrive before 7:00 p.m.
to get a seat. We strongly suggest making a reservation (you must have a party of
4 or more) at Hamburger Mary's to ensure your seat.
All proceeds go to Reading to Kids. For more details, visit our
May 2nd Bingo event on
Facebook and invite your friends!
HELP FIND MORE BINGO PRIZES & A CELEBRITY!
You can also help us gather more prizes for the bingo winners! To help you get started, here is information about Reading to Kids you can share with potential donors (such as where you work or shop), as well as a donation form for them to complete.
We'd also like to have a celebrity host as a bingo caller. Please e-mail us at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you can personally reach out to any celebrities who would like to help your favorite good cause!
