The 5th Annual Wade Smith Foundation Charity Weekend is finally here!  Each year, our founder, Wade Smith, celebrates his birthday by giving back to the Lake Highlands community through two days of education, fun, football and philanthropy. What started out as the Lake Highlands Legends Charity Weekend has since become known as Wade's Weekend and this weekend, we will celebrate 5 awesome years!  You can review our schedule of events below:
The 2016 Wade's Weekend kicks off tomorrow morning with a 3-school Reading with the Pros Literacy Tour.  Wade is teaming up with his pro football and celebrity friends, as well as community leaders, civil servants and business professionals to promote the importance of literacy and education to kindergarten through 6th grade students at Audelia Creek, Thurgood Marshall and Wallace elementary schools. Please note, these events are closed to the public.
Join us tomorrow night at TOPGOLF DALLAS for the Smitty & Friends Charity Topgolf Tournament hosted by Wade Smith and his celebrity friends. See below for just a few of our confirmed celebrity golfers.  This will be a fun-filled night of philantrophy, raising funds for the Smitty's Scholars Scholarship program, as well as the Reading With the Pros Literacy events. These programs support thousands of students in the DFW Metroplex & Greater Houston!  Silent Auction items, Raffle Tickets for various prizes, Live Music, and Community Award presentations will all be a part of this amazing event!  Don't miss an opportunity to tee off with a celebrity teammate. Tickets and sponsorship opportunities can be found at SmittyTopgolf.Eventbrite.com

On Saturday, April 23rd, registered K-6th graders from all over the Metroplex will participate in our FREE Wade's Weekend Youth Football and Cheer Clinic, being held at Wildcat-Ram Stadium at Lake Highlands High School. Football participants will receive guidance and instruction from NFL/CFL/collegiate players and coaches, while cheer participants are led by current/former NCA/NDA coaches and professional cheerleaders/dancers. Campers are required to read one book and donate one new/used book in order to participate. WSF encourages education and excellence not just in sports, but in the classroom and the home as well.  Spectators who do not have children participating, but would like to watch camp activities, can donate one new/used book for entry.
We are so happy to announce that Wade has written his very first childen's book, Smitty Hits the (Play)Books, which will be released in conjunction with Wade's Weekend. The book, based on his own experiences, will be read for the first time during Reading with the Pros. Smitty Hits the (Play)Books shows young students and athletes how important it is to stay focused and determined at school so they can achieve their dreams in life and on the field.  

Wade will be signing his book at the River Oaks Barnes and Noble (2030 W Gray St, Houston, TX 77019) today, April 21st at 5 pm. Early arrival is suggested.

The book will be on sale during Wade's Weekend at the Smitty and Friends Charity Topgolf Tournament on Friday, April 22nd but you can also pre-order your copy here.
