2010 Read-a-Thon! October 22, 2010

Posted by Galaxy in Uncategorized.

A night of reading, among readers–it’s time again for Read-a-Thon!
In its first year, The Galaxy Bookshop’s Read-a-Thon raised over $800 for Hardwick Head Start and Early Head Start. Last year, we doubled that figure and brought in $1,660–money that went towards supplying books to students in the early education programs.

Readers get comfortable and settle in with some good books for the night.

This year’s Read-a-Thon is an overnight event, running from 5 p.m. on Friday, November 5 through 8 a.m. on Saturday, November 6. Participants spend the night at The Galaxy Bookshop, where they will have hours to read, plus have the option to participate in a variety of book related activities.

Not sure what Read-a-Thon is all about? Just like any fundraising marathon, Read-a-Thon participants sign up in advance to receive a form for collecting pledges that will go to Hardwick Head Start and Early Head Start. Donors can choose to sponsor a reader by the hour, by the page, or with a set donation.

We are looking for participants and for volunteers to assist with setup, food donation, overnight supervision, activities, and cleanup.

Forms are due back at The Galaxy Bookshop Friday, October 29.
