A local school is selected to have students participate. On November 22, 2011 SABIS International School of The South Mountain Village was chosen for this event. A group of 50 second graders who were chosen by a lottery got to meet the Cardinals mascot, Big Red , who danced with the students and got them excited about reading.
Following Big Red the students were read to by player Andre Roberts #12, wide receiver of the Cardinals . After reading some of the kids’ favorite books he answered questions and joined them for milk and cookies supplied by Safeway stores. Thank you to Safeway, SRP and the Arizona Cardinals for making this a special day for our students. (Source: South Mountain Villager)
