Before I talk about the TBF Read-a-Thon , I would like to congratulate our wonderful TBF fans who ran in George Eastman House 5K Photo Finish. In addition, TBF raised $2,100! A huge thank you to everyone who donated and our runners!
Now let's talk about the Read-a-Thon (RAT). This is just one of the few fundraisers you can participate in. This year's fundraising goal is $10,000. How can you sign up for RAT?
Ask your librarian at your school or library if they are involved with TBF and can get you a reader packet. If not, contact Stephanie at StephanieS@tbflive.org. We ask fundraisers to raise a minimum of $20 to participate in the RAT. For an added incentive, the teen reader who raises the most money for RAT will receive TWO tickets to the TBF Author Dinner on Friday, May 15th, 2015.
Details about RAT
