first_imgIn conjunction with ReadBAMARead, University of Alabama head gymnastics coach Dana Duckworth will be at the Krispy Kreme on McFarland Boulevard this Saturday, June 15 from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.The event predicates around helping ignite an interest in reading as Duckworth and members of ReadBAMARead will read some of their favorite books.“ReadBAMARead is proud when we find ways the community can join us in supporting literacy and libraries,” Duckworth said in a news release. “This is our first fundraiser in 2019 and not only do we encourage the support but these are great looking t-shirts and I love that they represent Tuscaloosa. When you join us on Saturday and make a minimum $20 donation, and/or let your child read with our crew, you can drive away knowing you made a difference and helped us support Tuscaloosa libraries. It’s a win-win.”The organization will also be selling T-shirts with the proceeds helping to fund projects that will aim to enhance literacy in Alabama.“We’re excited to be out on Saturday, sharing our love of reading with this community that we love so much,” Duckworth said. “Reading isn’t just a school assignment, it’s something everyone can enjoy year-round. This will be a fun family activity and kids are encouraged to bring their favorite book with them to share.”last_img read more
