Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

We have 356 spots available for our "Halloween, Mysteries, and Magic" reading clubs on Saturday, October 13th. You don't want to miss the monsters, magicians, and mayhem, so please sign up today.

Be sure to also invite a friend or two to volunteer with you, since October is always one of our most popular reading clubs of the year.

ERIK GRIFFIN OF "WORKAHOLICS" STARS AT OUR OCT. 2ND COMEDY NIGHT

We are delighted to announce that Erik Griffin will be the headliner at our 2012 Benefit Comedy Night and Silent Auction!

You know Erik from his recurring role as Montez Walker on Comedy Central's Workaholics, as well as his numerous appearances in many shows on NBC, Showtime, and Comedy Central.

Erik has also appeared in many popular national commercials, such as the Emmy-winning "Bud Light Swear Jar". Erik is wildly funny, and with the other comedians also announced so far - Jackie Kashian, Andrew Donnelly, and Michael Gelbart, with more to be added soon - the evening is sure to be a blast!
