READ Saskatoon Golf Tournament for Literacy

Saskatoon, July 6, 2020 – Pura Vida Yoga Loft holds commitment to READ Saskatoon Golf Tournament for Literacy

It has been a long, bumpy road planning for our 14th Golf Tournament for Literacy. We are usually sold out by now, with sponsorships secured, and just working out the details.

We have come to the realization that the READ Saskatoon Golf Tournament for Literacy will be moving online this year. Our first virtual event will run August 10-17, 2020 on our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), Global Saskatoon, and our website.

Thank you for your patience regarding this announcement. We, along with committed donors and businesses, are disappointed that we will not be able to get together this summer to celebrate community supporters and the literacy accomplishments of our adult learners. However, we will ensure these achievements are broadcast through our social media channels and watch for our segment on Global Saskatoon!

READ Saskatoon is working hard to minimize the impact of our office closure on our clients. Our Lead adult literacy tutoring program continues online. Currently 50% of our literacy coaches and learners are continuing their learning through phone or computer weekly. This spring eleven (11) families completed the Matched Savings program online by participating in money management workshops and opening RESPs for their children. Nine (9) families completed READ Saskatoon’s first virtual family literacy program: 1, 2, Buckle My Shoe and several school-aged children were able to meet virtually with a volunteer to improve their reading skills.

We are successful because of supporters like Pura Vida Yoga Loft, who increased their commitment this year by 50%. Spring saw the cancellation of two READ Saskatoon large fundraising events; you can imagine the impact this has on our programming reach. Thanks to Pura Vida Yoga Loft and other supporters, READ Saskatoon can move into the fall program season secure that our clients will have the tools they need to accomplish their learning goals.
