Back to School event invitation

I know... school isn't even over and we're talking back to school. Anyway...
You are invited to participate in our event-
Back to School- Back to Nature
Saturday, August 6, 2011
9am- noon

Kids visit a variety of interactive nature activity stations, then receive a free school supply item. Raffles for backpacks, Publix gift cards and more will round out the morning. Family pre-registration by phone and online will be required to ensure adequate supplies- first come, first served. We will have a tally of registrants by July 22. Based on past BTS-BTN events, plan on about 150-200 children.

We would like to include other non-profits, schools and/or government entities who have a similar desire to help connect children with nature. We are active supporters of NWF's Be Out There!, Get Outdoors Florida, Children and Nature's "Let's GO"  and No Child Left Inside.
We will provide a table and chair- you provide a quick activity (less than 2 mins to complete- examples are ring toss/ball games w/ nature theme, nature trivia, etc.)  and one or two staff people. If you can provide a school supply item to give away, that would be great. This year we are trying something different to encourage local businesses to donate items or cash so if you don't have your own school supply item to distribute, we will provide something but there will also be a sign designating the company who provided the donation.
If you are interested in participating in this event, please reply to this email with the following information:
