Please click here to submit your RSVP today, then "join" the June 8th reading club event on Facebook and invite your friends!

If you joined us at our 25th Anniversary Celebration the evening of May 11th, you may have enjoyed beer donated by the Creature Comforts Taproom and Brewery.

They support our mission so much that they have created a 90's-themed adult spelling bee as a fundraiser for Reading to Kids!

Click here for the Eventbrite description. They are located at 1124 San Julian Street Los Angeles, CA 90015, and the spelling bee will go from 4pm - 6pm this Sunday, May 26th. Enter as a contestant at the above Eventbrite link, with an early bird discount of just $8 each for the first 10 to sign up, so grab your spot expeditiously!

$14 entry fee after those early bird spots are filled, with only 20 spots available in total. The event is free to attend if you're only spectating, and they're kid and dog friendly.

All proceeds from entry fees and $1 of every beer sold during the event go towards Reading to Kids. Show up to show off your spelling skills or root for your favorite spellers!

THANK YOU TO THE ROSE HILLS FOUNDATION
