Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

June is just around the corner and we are already eagerly preparing for our "Super Heroes and Super People" Reading Clubs on June 14th.

We are still on the search for 172 more volunteers so please take a moment to sign up to give the kids a great start to their summer!

Don't forget to also join our Facebook event to help spread the word to your friends and family.



On Wednesday, June 11th 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, June 11th, 7pm - 9pm
WHERE: Hamburger Mary's Restaurant
              8288 Santa Monica Blvd.
              West Hollywood, CA 90046

Legendary Bingo is very popular and there is limited seating available. Plan to arrive before 7:00 p.m. to get a seat. We strongly suggest making a reservation (you must have a party of 6 or more) at Hamburger Mary's to ensure your seat. You can call Hamburger Mary's at (323) 654-3800.

For more details, visit our Bingo event on Facebook and share it with your friends!

Please also click the image below for a flyer in .PDF format, and forward it to anyone you know who may be interested in going to our Legendary Bingo Night.
