ELA Trike-A-Thon

May 9, 2012

The Early Learning Academy will be celebrating its 8th annual Trike-A-Thon on Thursday, May 10, 2012 from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. at the Dawson County Fairgrounds / Commercial Building.  This event is held to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  St. Jude's is a non-profit institution dedicated to research and treatment of childhood cancer and other rare medical conditions.  Families are not charged for any treatment beyond what insurance may cover. 

Everyone is invited to attend and watch preschool children practice their skills in riding tricycles and bicycles safely. A meal consisting of hamburger, chips, drink and dessert treat will be available for $3.00.  Early Learning Academy Director, Bob Ripp, will be managing the grill along with several capable associates who will do their best to keep him from burning the burgers.  In addition to burgers, there will be Mexican tamales to eat at the event or take home. There will be drawings for prizes.  Tickets to enter the drawing are 50-cents each.  All proceeds will go directly to benefit the children at St. Jude's.  Monetary donations and items for the prize drawings are welcome.  If you have an item to donate, please contact Bob Ripp at the ELA (324-1841).  Hope to see you there!
