SHARE OUR FLYER, TOO!

Drag Queen Bingo!

Tonight we're playing Legendary Bingo at Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood!

We need more bingo players, so whether or not you can go, please share our Oct. 2nd Bingo event on Facebook by tagging and inviting your friends!

Please also click the image below 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.

103 MORE READERS NEEDED
FOR OCT. 12TH CLUBS

Our October reading clubs are traditionally our largest of the year, so we'll need your help to recruit 103 more volunteers over the next few weeks!

We are also in need of volunteers to be Grade Level Coordinators, Training Coordinators, Check-in Helpers, and Food Runners. Please e-mail info@readingtokids.org if you'd like to step into any of these important roles.

If you haven't already, please join our October 12th Facebook Event. It really helps us when you do because your friends can see you're attending the reading clubs. Help us spread the word by inviting them to join! After you join, don't forget to go to our website and sign up with us.

Please also email and post on your Twitter/Facebook/Instagram/ etc. that we need more volunteers. Be sure to tell your friends and family:

1) The reading clubs are the morning of October 12th near Downtown LA
2) Volunteers must sign up online at www.readingtokids.org

3) The school at which you will be reading

Please also print out this flyer and post it in heavily populated locations such as coffee shops, the gym, your office or other various community centers. Make it a personal and fun social event by including the school at which you'll be reading.  You can also use this easy message template to reach out to your friends and co-workers.

October means magicians will be performing for the kids and volunteers!

At these October reading clubs, feel free to also wear fun, school-appropriate Halloween costumes, too!

 Team Reading to Kids logo

We're looking for six more full marathon runners and six Charity Challenge runners (the last 13 miles of the course) to join us in one of the best marathons in the country.

If either of those distances is too daunting, you can join us in the Big 5K (that's just 3.1 miles) near Dodger Stadium the day before the marathon on Saturday, March 7, 2020.

You can share this Facebook group with any of your runner friends to encourage them to join our team!

If you or a runner you know is interested in becoming one of our fundraising runners or creating a fundraising team, please email Chris Martin at marathon@readingtokids.org!

IMPORTANT NOTE: To register to run on behalf of Reading to Kids, you MUST receive from us a special web address to use when registering on the Los Angeles Marathon website.
