My daughter is a real book worm! She loves the library and cannot wait to pick up all the items she has on hold at our favorite branch. In all honesty, my entire family loves the library! That’s why when a friend told me two tickets to the annual Evening in the Stacks gala were a benefit at a specific donor level, I joined Friends & Foundation — and joined the party!
Last year’s gala was beyond fun—the DJ, delicious food and drinks, dancing with Michael Jackson, and being a little too loud in the library. In fact, I had such a great time that I decided to join the Friends & Foundation’s board and am now helping with the 2019 Evening in the Stacks silent auction fundraiser!
It’s easy for me to give back to something that brings such enjoyment to our lives, so I invite you to do the same and join me at this year’s gala. It is going to be an “otherworldly” experience. We hope to raise $100,000 so more families can enjoy all HCLS has to offer. And that’s what it means to be a “Friend.”
