Weekly Update
May 7,†2009

Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

This Saturday is a very special day for all of us.†

May 9, 2009 marks the ten-year anniversary of our very first monthly reading clubs.†
To celebrate and commemorate the event, it is†fitting that we will start the day hosting our 121st consecutive monthly reading clubs, and we will end the day with our Tenth Anniversary Celebration Comedy Night and Silent Auction†at The MontalbŠn in Hollywood.†
So far, we have sold over 240 tickets to our Tenth Anniversary Event (click here to see a list of attendees), but plenty of tickets are still available.
This event is very important for us.† In years past, we have been able to rely on funding from foundations and corporations to sustain most of our budget.† This year,†those same funders have already indicated that they will be cutting back on whom they fund.† Therefore, a†large turnout at this Saturday's event will not only help us raise money to sustain our existing operations, but it will demonstrate to these funders that Reading to Kids has broad support in the community.†
During our Annual Fund Drive last year, we asked for your help to demonstrate such community support, and you responded brilliantly!† We ended up setting a new record in 2008 with almost 900 donors!
This year, we have moved our annual comedy night event to a larger space -- The MontalbŠn in Hollywood.††Nike Sportswear†has generously donated the theater for us to use.† Our fabulous lineup of comedians have generously donated their time to perform.† Now, we need you to do your part.†
Please join us for our Tenth Anniversary Event on Saturday.† Not only will you have a great time, but you will be supporting a great cause -- a cause that you obviously support and believe in, or you would have unsubscribed from this e-mail list by now.† :-)
Thanks, and we hope to see you at our reading clubs Saturday morning and/or our Tenth Anniversary Event on Saturday night.

Sincerely,

††Jason Axe
