Weekly Update
August 14, 2009

Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Summer is winding down and Reading to Kids is gearing up to go back to school. While some of our schools are year round, many are transitioning to a traditional school year and we are excited to see all the kids after a fun summer of reading clubs, social events and fundraisers.

As always, we thank you for your enthusiasm and continued support of the reading clubs and for inspiring hundreds of children with a love of reading!

GRASSROOTS ACOUSTICA ROCKS!

Thank you to Grassroots Acoustica at the Talking Stick Coffee Lounge in Venice for raising $515.00 for Reading to Kids.

Master of ceremonies Mark Islam hosted the 3 hour Heart Of Saturday Night Edition which included performances by local LA musicians and was enjoyed by all who attended. The music jam was a great way to unwind after a busy morning at the reading clubs.  We appreciate the generosity of the Talking Stick community, thank you!
