EITC Rally 2019

The annual EITC Rally is coming up next month. Each year REACH Foundation hosts this rally celebrating the inception of Pennsylvania's EITC Program. The event is widely attended by children, parents, educators and legislators from all over the Commonwealth, and serves as a fantastic opportunity to show the program's success and promote its growth.

If your organization or the schools you work with will be in attendance, we request that they send in their RSVP no later than April 26, 2019. RSVPs may be sent to mail@paschoolchoice.org and must include the name of the school, the name and phone number of the chaperone/school representative coming, and the amount of people attending. This RSVP ensures that everyone in attendance is able to get a bagged lunch and a t-shirt. Please let us know at ACSIPA as well.

The rally will take place on Tuesday, May 7th, at the front steps of the PA State Capitol. This is a rain or shine event. The event commences at Noon and lasts about an hour; lunch is provided thereafter. Kids are encouraged to arrive around 11 to claim their t-shirts. Many schools coming from a distance like to schedule Capitol tours for before/after the event, as well as visiting the State Museum which is just down the street.

T-shirt Contest: Each year students attending the rally are presented with the opportunity to win $500 for their school. We've received some great designs in years past, but have not received any this year. We encourage your students to participate! The design will be printed on all event t-shirts and featured on our social media. Contact REACH at mail@paschoolchoice.org for more info and contest rules.
