local group is participating by reading to children at the Luciano Martinez
Center in Palm Springs to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.
For Immediate Release (10/3/2013) – West Palm Beach, FL. – One year ago this week, more than 2.3 million volunteers from
communities across the nation convened on their local pre-K and elementary

Why? To set a new world record for most people reading the same book on
the same day, and raise awareness for the importance of childhood literacy.
Read for the Record is an annual event organized by JumpStart, a Boston,

in partnership with Pearson.

Offices of Craig Goldenfarb and their staff to commit volunteers from
the firm to read the adorable story of Otis, a lovable tractor who befriends
a calf, in coordination with millions of other volunteers and children
throughout the country.
Craig Goldenfarb shares in the vision of JumpStart. "I have watched
my two daughters go through their elementary education. I have seen how
influential these preschool developmental years can be and how reading
can develop and expand their minds. I’m really happy to know I have
staff that share my feelings, and are willing to take time out of their
morning to help the children at the Luciano Martinez Center develop a
love for reading."
Spencer T. Kuvin, Director of Litigation for the Law Offices of Craig Goldenfarb,
sees Read for the Record as an opportunity to honor the Hispanic culture.
“The children of the Luciano Martinez Center are the future of the
Hispanic community in our town and our county. I’m excited to see
first-hand the work that this wonderful organization is doing for this
