Eight lucky students from Audubon Elementary had the opportunity of a lifetime on Jan. 24 when Page Ahead Children’s Literacy Program donated 10 tickets to the U.S. Figure Skating Championships finale.

The children were not only able to see the finale, they were also able to meet and have their picture taken with gold medalist Rachael Flatt, a spokesperson for the national children’s literacy organization Reading is Fundamental. She made the students’ visit extra special, autographing championship memorabilia for each student.

“What an opportunity for those kids!” said Debbie Webster, the office manager at Audubon, in a press release. “They had a fabulous time.”

The tickets were donated to Page Ahead through Reading Is Fundamental.

Page Ahead is a local children’s literacy nonprofit that provides new books and reading activities to children in need. Audubon Elementary is one of 14 Page Ahead partner schools in Spokane County.
