Your $50 ticket price includes a glass of wine or beer, unlimited appetizers and desserts, and an entry ticket to our prize raffle, plus the opportunity to bid on a wonderful selection of silent auction gifts. This year’s event will again feature both desserts and appetizers from some of the best restaurants and bakeries in the area.

New this year: If you can’t attend the event and you'd still like to support the library, or if you’d like to increase your chances of winning, raffle tickets for the ring will be available at the front desk for $25.

About the ring: This year's jewelry piece is a custom, handcrafted 14 karat yellow gold, diamond, and 1.58ct grape garnet ring valued at $3,000 and designed by Belinda Vartenuk of Abshire & Haylan Jewelers.

Over the years this event has generated more than $164,000 for our library, allowing us to make improvements which would not have been possible with tax money alone. These projects include a new mural in the children’s area, an anti-microbial floor in the Story Time room, conference room table with plug-in capability and fourteen chairs, the outdoor electronic message board, the new outreach vehicle in conjunction with the library, shelving and LED signage for the Tween Spot at Spike’s Place, and with last year’s money we were able to install illuminated signs on the front of the library.

You can be a part of future transformations by purchasing tickets and attending this year’s event. To donate silent auction items, complete the donation form and return it to the library with your donation by April 8. Can’t attend the event? Consider making a tax deductible donation. The Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization (Tax ID #C 34-1769857). If you have any questions, please call Ann Malthaner, Head of Public Relations at (330) 688-3295 ext. 110.
