On Friday, April 1, the Rockford Area Arts Commission (RAAC) will hold a fundraiser at the Barnes & Noble bookstore at Woodland Mall, where 10 percent of anything purchased in the store will benefit the arts in Rockford. If you’re looking for something to do during spring break, stop in and buy a latte and a magazine or some gifts for your Easter basket. Be sure to tell the cashier you are with the RAAC. However, e-books and gift certificates are excluded.
You’re heading to the beach, you say? No worries! You can shop online at bnn.com between April 1 and 6, and the RAAC will still get 10 percent of your purchase. Just put in this code number when you check out: Bookfair ID # 10441921.
Have fun shopping and supporting your favorite programs like Art in the Park, ArtCapsule, Rogue River Community Theater, and the Rockford Band, Orchestra and Choir. Stay tuned for a new event this summer called Rock the Dam!
