Change someone's life for the better; please give today!

Greetings Camel Race Fans!


We need YOU to be a part of the excitement in 2021!  Become a 2021 Camel Race sponsor!  THIS WILL BE OUR ONLY MAJOR FUNDRAISER IN 2021!!  Our Camel Race event for 2020 was cancelled.  In order to keep the Center fully open and serving students, we need to make the 2021 event a success. 

We selected a fun “Tailgating” theme for the event and made a few changes.  Admission tickets will only be $25 each.  We will not serve dinner, but have made wonderful “Tailgating” themed foods available for sale through our caterer.  You can decorate your camel with our theme in mind or go an entirely different direction.  Either way, this will be a fabulous time.  We encourage you to wear your favorite team attire and, maybe even NAME your champion camel this year!

Proceeds from this ONE event represent a big part of our program budget for the year.  We haven’t been able to host the Races since 2019.  WE NEED YOUR HELP to make this event a success in 2021.  PLEASE become a sponsor this year and send in your sponsorship form! We will gladly accept any donation level.



          Your support allows us to work with out of school students (about half of our 300+ students are under age 24) and helps them improve 

          skills, get a GED, keep their jobs, get better jobs, enter training programs, get in to college, and build better lives.  With your help, about 50

          of our students earn their GED each year!  YOU are changing lives! 

          Your support makes it possible for us to tutor elementary aged children who are struggling with reading and math.  Tutoring is offered

          through our school and library based partnerships.  You are helping these children build skills and confidence! Your support also allows us

          to offer workshops for families with young children to encourage the development of literacy skills. 


Our Camel Races are Built Around the Sponsors!

This fun event is truly built around our sponsors.  Guests bet on their favorites, vote for “Best-Dressed” camel, and cheer your progress.  Your camel is decorated to represent your business or organization and will “race” against other area sponsors.  You build recognition in our community and show your support for the Family Literacy Center.  Especially now, WE NEED YOU!  Please act now and contact me with any questions!


Thank you!
