Thank you for making the Library Foundation Gala Art Auction a huge success! It was a wonderful evening of good people, live jazz, scrumptious food and beautiful art. And best of all, it exceeded our goal of raising $15,000 to benefit all locations of Calvert Library. Over a hundred County individuals and businesses made this possible through their service on the Auction Committee, donations and advertisements. In addition, over 200 people attended, many bidding successfully and taking home beautiful works of art.
We would like to express our particular appreciation to our Patron-Sponsors whose underwriting donations made the event possible. They were The Chesapeake Beach Resort and Spa, Mr. M. Kiplinger Hine, Jr., and an anonymous couple.
We are also indebted to the artists and other donors who contributed to the live and silent auctions, as well as the many restaurants and caterers who collectively provided the delicious “Taste of the Region” reception. In addition, many businesses and individuals contributed generously for advertisements in the evening’s program. We thank St. John Vianney’s Church and their staff for kindly hosting this event.
The lists of donors and advertisers can be found below.
We would greatly appreciate it if you would patronize these fine concerns, and while you’re there, thank them for their generous support of the Library.
This coming together of citizens who value the Library wonderfully illustrates the whole dynamic of the Foundation as a charity that provides opportunities for County residents to participate in providing the funds that government can’t, to make Calvert Library one of the best in the country.
