SAVE THE DATE: JOIN LAMB CHOP AT OUR
20TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION & COMEDY NIGHT ON MAY 11TH

Reading to Kids turns 20 years old at our May 11th reading clubs!

That evening we'll party like it's 1999 again at the beautiful Historic Woman's Club at 1210 Fourth Street, Santa Monica, CA 90401.

Please mark your calendars for a hilarious evening 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!

Mallory Lewis and Lamb Chop

Joining Lamb Chop will be a handful of hilarious comedians. We'll also have a silent auction, a DJ, and a video presentation. You won't want to miss out on this event, so keep your eyes peeled for more updates!

HELP FIND SPONSORS,
SILENT AUCTION ITEMS,
& COMEDIANS

We need your help finding sponsors and gathering more items for our silent auction that night!

To help you get started, here is an explanation of our sponsorship opportunities.

For silent auction items, here is information about Reading to Kids to share with potential donors, as well as a donation form for them to complete.

We especially enjoy awarding gift certificates, amusement park and theater tickets, gift bags, and autographed items! Anything unique is great, too!

If you work at or have a connection with products or services to offer, or can reach out to businesses to sponsor the event, then please help by asking for a donation to our anniversary.

COMEDIANS WANTED

If you personally know or have a solid connection to a well-known, headliner comedian who would be interested and available in performing that night, please email us at info@readingtokids.org.
