Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Princes, fairies, and dragons--oh, my! That's right, our May 11th "Fantasy, Folklore, and Fairytales" Reading Clubs are just around the corner!

Start spreading the word, and please take a moment to join our May 11th Facebook event. After you join, remember to visit our website and sign up with us.



We have exciting news! The Employees Community Fund of Boeing California has generously donated $3,000 to help us inspire children with a love of reading.

Thank you to Courtney Guy, Boeing employee and Reading to Kids volunteer, for helping to make this possible. Boeing employees' volunteering and support of education and literacy is truly appreciated!



Want to become more involved? Each year, Reading to Kids hosts an all-Taskforce Potluck as an opportunity for our Taskforce committees to meet and talk about their plans for the year and to welcome new Taskforce members.

Whether you're currently serving on the Taskforce or just curious, we welcome you to drop by to meet fellow volunteers, committee chairs, and office staff.

This year our Annual Taskforce Potluck will be on Sunday, April 28th at Pan Pacific Park, 7600 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA, 90036 (just 3 miles north of Alta Loma Elementary).

We'll have a lunch/social hour from 1:00 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. and then meet from 1:45 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. We will start with a brief overview of each committee and then break out into smaller groups for committee meetings.

Please RSVP to our Facebook event listing by clicking here. While there, please also indicate what you plan to bring to the potluck (entree, appetizer, salad, dessert, or beverages).

Please click here to learn more about the Taskforce prior to the potluck.



On Wednesday, May 15th mark your calendars to play Legendary Bingo at Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood! If you've been before you know it's a blast. If you haven't, it's time to see what you've been missing!

There is a $20 suggested donation at the door (cash only, please!) which includes 9 regular bingo games and one grand prize bingo game with fantastic prizes! Remember, the show is R rated and a ton of fun.

WHEN:   Wednesday, May 15th, 7pm - 9pm
WHERE: Hamburger Mary's Restaurant
              8288 Santa Monica Blvd.
              West Hollywood, CA 90046
