Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

You won't need a compass to find the "Discovery and Adventure" Reading Clubs this Saturday! If you haven't already, sign-up for one of the few remaining volunteer spots.

If you're signed up, but can't make this journey, please click here to cancel before 3pm on Friday so that someone else may take your place.

PRIZE PATROL!

We're starting to plan this year's events, and we need your help gathering prizes!

Our events are more fun and raise more money if we have great prizes to award, raffle, and/or auction. Big prizes. Little prizes. Serious prizes. Silly prizes. We need them all! Check out our list of prizes from last year's Silent Auction for ideas.

If you have any prizes, or you know where to get them, let us know! The fun starts this May with our annual Legendary Bingo night, and we'd love to have something fabulous for the grand prize winner -- anything unique or with an autograph is always welcome!

To help you get started, click these links for tips on how to best approach a business or person to donate to our events, and a donation form for the donor to complete.

In the past we have had gift certificates, products, services, and tickets to fun events. If you work at or have a connection with a restaurant, retail store, or for a company with products or services to offer, please help us by asking for a donation to our events.

Please also let Skylar know to whom you reach out so we don't accidentally duplicate Special Events Committee efforts in contacting businesses.

THANK YOU BUILD-A-BEAR WORKSHOP BEAR HUGS FOUNDATION

We would like to thank Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation for their $2,000 grant in support of our monthly reading clubs!

Their generous funding will enable us to continue to inspire children with a love of reading, and we welcome them as a new Reading to Kids friend and supporter.

MUSICIANS WANTED

Every March, musicians visit each school and perform for the kids. We have had a variety of performers from country singers to Korean drumming troupes! If you or someone you know would like to share the gift of music with the kids and volunteers, please reply to this email.

Thanks, and we'll see you on Saturday!
