Everything starts with a strong Foundation

Saturday, October 6, 2018, 7:00pm-11:00pm.

The inaugural fundraising event was held at the Country Club of Detroit and was more than a festive and elegant evening. It was a celebration of the power of the Library to transform lives! Guests joined together to make a direct and meaningful impact right here in our community. Proceeds helped enhance the Library’s outreach and service capabilities by funding a new delivery van!

Cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, dinner, silent and live auction, black tie optional. Entertainment by RJ Spangler and TBone Paxton’s Swingtet!
