Freebies for Kids with Dion’s Club Read

Dion’s Club Read is a great way to encourage kids to read, because they get FREE gifts in return… and maybe a chance to be Orbit’s guest at Isotopes Park!

The Dion’s Club Read program for preschool to 6th grade kids runs till July 18, 2012. The program is a partnership between Dion’s Pizza and the Albuquerque Isotopes, so it has a baseball theme – what’s not to love? Thanks to reader Leah for telling me about it, and if you missed our mention of it earlier this summer, here’s a reminder for the kids to get reading!

Here’s how it works: Pick up a scorecard brochure at a Dion’s location, or download it from the Dion’s Club Read website. After a child reads any six books of their choice (or it’s fine for parents and teachers to read books to youngsters who are still learning to read) they fill in the scorecard with the name of the books and they’ve hit a home run! The completed scorecard earns the student free gifts and a new scorecard. The child receives a different free gift package for each scorecard they fill:

  • Free gifts for the First Home Run (the first scorecard of six books read) are a free backpack, a book, and a bookmark.
  • For the Second Home Run (the second scorecard of six books read) the child gets a Dion’s Club Read T-Shirt, a ticket voucher to watch an Isotopes game, a coupon for a free small drink at Isotopes Park, a certificate, and an entry into a prize drawing.

The prize drawing is to win tickets to be Orbit’s guest at the Isotopes game on August 19, plus a Dion’s Pizza, a Dion’s gift card, an autographed baseball, AND the child can make a ceremonial first pitch! How cool is that? If this doesn’t encourage kids to read, then I don’t know what will!

The Dion’s Club Read program is for preschool children through 6th grade, and it runs until Wednesday July 18, 2012.

All the Dion’s locations and details on how the offer works are in the Dion’s Club Read brochure on their website.
