Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Thanks to everyone who came out for Legendary Bingo at Hamburger Mary's on Wednesday night.  The event was a lot of fun and raised $2,257 for Reading to Kids!

Thanks to Legendary Bingo and Hamburger Mary's for hosting the event! Thanks also to everyone who helped put together prize packages for the event, including Special Event Committee Co-Chairs Julie Moskovitz and Christine Oppenheim and Reading to Kids Intern Steph Pickering.

Check out Reading to Kids' blog for pictures from Legendary Bingo and our Hollywood Bowl event.
