USC WINS WITH THE MOST COLLEGE SPIRIT!

With more than 50 colleges represented on Saturday, the College Spirit Day Competition was intense!  For the first time in College Spirit Day history, USC has been named the winner!  It was a close race, with USC pulling ahead of UCLA by only 1 person with their 40 volunteers to UCLA's 39!  Thanks to USC's Alpha Phi Omega and Beta Alpha Phi for bringing 20 of those volunteers to Magnolia! 

Excluding the Los Angeles area schools, Stanford had the most statewide representation with 14 volunteers.  Cal also had a strong showing with 12 volunteers.  University of Michigan pulled together the most out-of-state support with 7 volunteers! 

Thank you to all the volunteers who showed up in their college attire to help get our kids excited about going to college!

 THANK YOU ANNUAL FUND DRIVE DONORS!

The November 11th reading clubs marked the official end to our 2006 Annual Fund Drive.  (That does not mean that we will not graciously accept year-end donations!)

Thanks to all of your support, we have exceeded our 2006 goals of $30,000 from individuals and 500 total donors!  Since we are still receiving donations this week, we will send out a final count later this month.  To see a list of Annual Fund Drive donors, click here.

THANK YOU to everyone who participated in Reading to Kids' 2006 Annual Fund Drive!  Your donations go a long way in helping to inspire children with a love of reading!
