ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- All Wegmans Food Markets stores hosted Cat in the Hat birthday parties this past Saturday afternoon, featuring birthday cake, a reading of Dr. Seuss' classic children's book "The Cat in the Hat," and an opportunity to help needy kids discover the joy of reading, in honor of the iconic feline's 50th anniversary.
The chainwide event was the result of a partnership between Random House Children's Books, Dr. Seuss Enterprises, and First Book, the last an organization that gives children from low-income families their first new books to read and own. For every Dr. Seuss book bought at Wegmans from now until May 1, Random House will donate a book to First Book.
Family-owned Wegmans operates 71 stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, and Maryland.
