Drinks, food + fun at A Novel Affair 2014 fundraiser for The Ferguson Library – Stamford, CT

27 Mar

 

Quite the novel idea…

Last year we were invited to attend A Novel Affair, The Ferguson Library‘s annual fundraiser, right in the library.  While it seemed pretty naughty to be eating and drinking in a library (we were even TALKING), we got over that quickly and had a blast.  All in, $160,000 was raised for the library during that event between ticket prices, donations, and auction items.  And, this year around, the needs

of the library have not disappeared.  They still need to fund the awesome events and classes they put on for kids and adults, purchase books and materials, help make initiatives happen, and maintain the library as a beacon light in the Stamford community.   

So, please join us at this year’s event on April 10 from 5:30-8:30, for food, drinks, and tons of fun.  Tickets are $125 and can be purchased here (sponsorship options available, too) or by calling (203) 351-8205.  Like we said, not only will you be helping to fund the library’s offerings and collections, you’ll also be able to take advantage of some of the area’s best food and drinks.

Just look:

Local Beer, Restaurants, + More @ A Novel Affair Fundraiser for The Ferguson Library

If you didn’t know, Dan teaches middle school English.  So, it’s no surprise that he values reading, literacy, and the pursuit of knowledge. Hey, life isn’t about just food.  Also, we both value libraries. They educate, they bring the community together, and they move the world ahead. That being said, we are all aware of the money crisis throughout America and we know that libraries often end up on the chopping block. And, being former Stamford residents, we have seen hours cut and worse, but we have also seen people work together to keep the local library system going. For example, local businesses such as Citizens Bank and Pitney Bowes have sponsored Sunday hours at The Ferguson Library.
