Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
Thanks to everyone who attended The Reading to Kids Third Annual Comedy Night and Silent Auction this Tuesday! With a packed room at the Improv and a great lineup of comedians and silent auction items, we raised nearly $7,500 to support our reading clubs.
A special thanks goes out to all of the comics who donated their time and talent to support Reading to Kids:
(better known to Reading to Kids fans as the sister of Gratts volunteer Laura Silverman)
Ali Bubba, The Texas Turk
and our host, Meredith Myers
Additional thanks go out to all of our Comedy Night volunteers and Reading to Kids interns Rebeka Smith and Jason Hashimoto -- all of whom dedicated many hours to making the event a success.
Thanks again, and we hope to see you all next year!
