JULY 2013 

Greetings to our friends and supporters,      


We've got two fantastic ways for you to usher in your summer in style:


#1)  Be a runner in the TD Beach to Beacon 10k Road Race on August 3rd; there's still time!  Kids First has a bib for you, just commit to raising $500 for the Center.  Our deadline for signing you up is Saturday, June 29th  (we pay the registration fee).  Contact us ASAP!

#2)  Win 4 box seat tickets to the July 23rd Red Sox vs. Tampa Bay Rays game at Fenway(value: $95 each). All you need to do is share a great co-parenting story with us!  It can be one you've experienced yourself, or seen someone else demonstrate.  Long or short, old or new, we're interested in hearing about it!  You can just hit "reply" to this newsletter, or respond on our Facebook page.   Our deadline for submissions is July 8th  (winner will be drawn randomly and will be notified immediately via email or Facebook).


In addition, Amato's is donating $1 to Kids First for every new "Like" our Facebook page receives before July 15th.  If you haven't done so already, please go to our page and hit that "Like" button!  As always, we thank you for putting kids first today.  And enjoy your summer!


Warmest regards,

Peg Libby

Executive Director
