Wild About Reading, presented by Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino, PG&E and Educational Employees Credit Union (EECU), is one of the largest educational programs in all of professional sports. The program utilizes baseball to promote reading in and outside the classroom. Each student at participating schools is challenged to reach 10 books in five weeks, and those that reach the goal, receive two free tickets to a Grizzlies home game at Chukchansi Park. In 2013, each student that participates will receive a Farm Grown Magazine that was designed and published by the Grizzlies Community Fund and Farm Progress. There are several other prizes for schools in 2013, such as a play date with Parker, Kindle Fires to individual students as well as the donation of two laptops to one school.
Interested schools are still able to enroll in Wild About Reading for 2013. Please contact Whitney Campbell at (559) 320-2547 to sign up as well as schedule an assembly featuring Parker, the Grizzlies mascot.
