TOAD STORE READY FOR 2014 SEASON

 

Getting your toad-gear just got easier with the official opening of the Toad Store on Friday morning.

The Toad Store, at 1321 Oak St., will be open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“Come out, get your shirts. Get them early,” said Toad Store Co-Chairwoman Michelle McKown. “It’s going to be a warm, beautiful festival year this year.”

McKown is joined by Tanya Malcolm as co-chairwomen for this year’s store.

“As you know, the proceeds from Toad Suck Daze fund education,” said Mary Margaret Satterfield, director of events at the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce. “This is our 33 year of Toad Suck Daze and, at this time, more than $1.5 million have been given in direct scholarships to endowments and also to Pre-K education which we started about two years ago.”

This year, $77,500 will be donated from Toad Suck Daze proceeds. This covers approximately 13 scholarships to University of Central Arkansas, Hendrix College, Central Baptist College, University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton as well as donations to the GetSmart Challenge at the Community Foundation of Faulkner County and Arkansas Preschool Plus, formally known as LifeLong Learners.

Toad Suck Daze will take place in downtown Conway May 2 to May 4.
