Thanks to hundreds of Calvert County people who gave generously of their time, talent and finances, and by their attendance, the 2017 Calvert Library Foundation Art Auction on October 7th, at St. Paul’s Church Hall, Prince Frederick, raised over $20,000 for the betterment of all locations of Calvert Library! Dedicated Committee Members from around the County worked for months to bring it all together, creating a striking evening of music, art and entertainment, featuring local artists’ creations as well as a professionally curated collection of world-recognized art.
Scott Deacon, President of the Foundation, said, “Particular thanks go to the sponsors whose significant financial support ensured the success of the event: Community Bank of the Chesapeake; Dr. Sheldon Seidel, Orthodontist; Pickett & Oliverio, Attorneys at Law; Kip and Patti At Lee; Ms. Martha Grahame, Dr. Lucinda Keller, in honor of Gloria and Russell Costley; and, the American Legion, Stalling-Williams Post 206.”
In addition, many community businesses and individuals purchased advertising in the evening’s program, twenty local restaurants and caterers provided their specialties for a lavish “Tastes of the Region” buffet for the evening’s reception, and dozens of businesses and individuals provided works of art and beautiful gifts that were auctioned. The Calvert Library Foundation asks that you refer to Facebook and their website, for detailed information concerning these generous donors, noting that your thanks and patronage would be most welcome expressions of appreciation for their commitment to Calvert Library’s service to our community.
