Reach Out & Read’s 6th Annual Read and Romp
Reach Out and Read San Diego (RORSD) held its sixth annual Read and Romp on February 28th, 2015 at the McMillin Event Center at Liberty Station in Point Loma. The fundraising event included a raffle, silent auction, and a private concert by well-known children’s band Hullabaloo. Storybook stations carried themes of classic children’s books such as Dr. Seuss’ “One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish” and featured related games, arts and crafts projects, and other fun activities. First 5 San Diego hosted a booth at this event that encouraged parents to read to their children and promote a love of reading.
RORSD, funded in part by First 5 San Diego, prepares children to succeed in school by partnering with doctors to prescribe books and encourage families to read together. RORSD serves more than 65,000 children and their families annually. For more information about Reach Out and Read San Diego, visit www.rorsd.org.
