Going on in conjunction with this event is the My Family Reads event at Foster Park Elementary. It will also be going on April 30 from 10-1. It will be a drive-thru event where you can take home books and resources, enter to win gift cards, and sign the pledge to read to your child every day. The first 100 families to attend will receive a $10 gift card to a local restaurant. Every parent who takes the pledge will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of six $50 gift cards to Barnes & Noble. They have a goal of 300 families to sign the pledge to read to their children every day. The event is a partnership between Save the Children, Union County Schools, and the Union County Library System.
