Reading with the Rays Makes Summer Reading Super Fun!
Suncoast Credit Union is proud to partner with the Tampa Bay Rays Reading with the Rays, a program that keep kids reading all summer long.
During the summer, kids can pick up their game card at their local library. Then they can check out some of their favorite books and start reading! The goal is 24 total hours of reading.
Students use a game card to track hours and collect prizes, with two tickets to a Rays game as the grand prize for students who read 24 hours during the program.
In 2016, we had more than 37,000 participants from nine of the counties we serve. That’s more than 150,000 total hours of reading in one summer! There were 7,690 Rays tickets redeemed.
We’re so proud of all of the participants and can’t wait to see how many readers we get in the summer of 2017!
