Comedy-Magician and Harrah’s Headliner Mac King is hitting the road again to collect books for kids in at-risk schools during Back to School 2013.
King is teaming up with the Las Vegas 51s baseball team and Grimaldi’s Pizzeria in Las Vegas to host book drives this August for Mac King’s Magical Literacy Tour: Back to School 2013, benefiting Clark County READS, the literacy initiative of The Public Education Foundation.
“I am proud to see the literacy tour grow in the past few years as more community partners jump on board. Thanks to these organizations and to the people who donate books, we are able to provide more reading opportunities to kids,” said King. “This August, Grimaldi’s Pizzeria and the Las Vegas 51s are making it easy for the Las Vegas community to do their part by donating books while enjoying a tasty pizza and an all-American baseball game.”
Throughout the month of August donate three or more new or gently used children’s books to receive a pair of tickets to The Mac King Comedy Magic Show and special offers from the host venue.
