Pro-Bowler Wade Smith & All-Stars Kick-Off Weekend with Reading Hour at Stella Link Library

Pro-Bowler Wade Smith & All-Stars Kick-Off Weekend with  Reading Hour at Stella Link Library

Houston, TX (RPRN) 02/12/13 — In the spirit of charity, Houston Texans' Pro-Bowl Left Guard, Wade Smith, is hosting his monthly "Reading with the Pros" event, but with an All-Star flare. After school on Friday, February 15, 2013 from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m., Smith and teammates Chris Myers and David Hunter, European basketball player Marcus Sloan, Ryan Mouton of the Tennessee Titans, and more will read to local children (including students from Mark Twain Elementary, Longfellow Elementary, Shearn Elementary and The Rice School) at the Stella Link Library, in an effort to promote literacy and education. Staff will be on hand again to complete library card registrations. Players will sign autographs and take pictures with the visitors immediately following the reading; however, space is limited and seating priority will be given to children rather than adults. Stella Link Library is located at 7405 Stella Link Road, Houston, TX 77025.

“We present "Reading with the Pros" every month and wanted to make sure that we took advantage of the star-power in the city this weekend to offer a memorable experience for the kids,” states Smith, who’s vision for Reading With the Pros began in April 2012 in Dallas with 3 elementary schools and has expanded to include 3 Houston Public Library and 6 elementary school appearances.

Previous "Reading with the Pros" celebrity participants have included Matt Schaub, Ben Tate, Owen Daniels, Antoino Smith, Arian Foster, Antoine Caldwell, Duane Brown, Earl Mitchell, TJ Yates, Chris Myers, Ryan Harris, Brandon Brooks, Ben Jones, Shaun Cody, Cody White, Andrew Gardner, of the Houston Texans, Lawrence Vickers of the Dallas Cowboys, Herb Taylor of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Shelley Smith of the St. Louis Rams, Sherrick McMannis of the Chicago Bears, international professional basketball player, Marcus Sloan, and Dallas radio personality, DJ Kayotik of 97.9 The Beat.

Celebrities interested in taking part should contact adrienne@wadesmithfoundation.org to confirm participation.
