Master Plan Community Benefits Kids

LAS VEGAS — Providence, a master-planned community in northwestern Las Vegas, will host a children's reading festival to benefit Kids to Kids, an organization that works to advance literacy causes in Nevada. The celebration, which coincides with the culmination of Nevada Reading Week, will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 3 at the Providence Information Center at I-215 and Hualapai Way.

"Kids to Kids is a remarkable organization. Its dedication to introducing children to the power of the written word is a real inspiration," said John A. Ritter, chairman and chief executive officer of the Focus Property Group. "In building a strong community at Providence, we want to help organizations like Kids to Kids, while encouraging our residents to be active participants in reading and helping others to read."

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, The Children's Literacy Festival will feature games that integrate books as the central theme. Readings by authors will be scheduled throughout the day, including Ruth Devlin, who authored "A Reader for All Seasons" and Frank Fiorello, who wrote "When I Read." Maria Silva, an anchorperson on KVBC-TV, Channel 3, will also read to children.

Other non-profit organizations will also be highlighted. For more information, visit
