Kate Hall, CEO and founder of the popular blog: Richmondmom.com, will be setting out on a 1,400 mile Chevy-sponsored road trip to South By Southwest (#SXSW) next week. She'll be joined by three great RVA ladies as her sidekicks; Kate Semp, Kelly Vance and Monica Horsley.
Hall and her team “RVAEPICTALES," will drive a Chevy Traverse from Richmond to Austin, TX to raise money for Adopt-a-Classroom, which provides teachers and schools with essential supplies. The team will blog about their experience on the road, featuring interviews with other entrepreneurs about what drives them, along with any 'epic tales they may (and will) encounter.
To keep up to date with their journey & tales - you can follow their road diaries here: www.richmondmom.com/
Everyone is invited to an exciting send off celebration, for these four ladies, at 4pm next Tuesday, March 6, at Dominion Chevrolet in Short Pump. They will be presenting a check to Alexander Mustico, the 3rd grade teacher whose class was "adopted" by Adopt-a-Classroom. Everyone is also encouraged to bring school supplies to donate for the non-profit Adopt-a-Classroom program!
Any donation of school supplies are greatly welcome, large or small! This is a great time to put your coupon skills to use & shop any store school supply deals to help increase your donation to a great cause without having to spend too much money out of pocket. Be sure to scan the weekend sales flyers for our local grocery, office supply and drug stores, along with Target & Wal-mart to see what you can find that would be great to donate to such a great cause!
We RVA Coupon Pros LOVE to find great savings with school supplies! Check out our "Back-to-School" Supply Challenge from last August 2011!
Another great incentive to come out to support RVAEpicTales & Adopt-a-Classroom during their send off celebration is that Dominion Chevrolet will be raffling off a "getaway" lease of a Chevy Traverse, just like the one @RVAEPICTALES is taking to Texas to help support the cause! Participants will also be automatically entered for a chance to win a car-- for keeps-- in April!!
