Mary Jacobs Library 12th Annual Fundraiser Nov 4

Food & Wine of Australia & New Zealand
Supports the Mary Jacobs Memorial Library Foundation

The Mary Jacobs Memorial Library Foundation's 12th annual food and wine fundraising event will take place at the library, 64 Washington Street, Rocky Hill, on Saturday, November 4, from 7 pm to 10 pm.
This year, the evening will feature a tasting menu highlighting the wine and cuisine of Australia and New Zealand. Entertainment and activities will include: acoustic guitar music by Matt Robinson of Belle Mead; a Silent Auction; and a Wine Pull. Sponsorship opportunities are still available and include two tickets to the event. Please visit www.maryjacobs.og for more information.


Foundation Trustee Cary Dawson of Rocky Hill and Grant Moser of Belle Mead are organizing the popular event, which is the Foundation's premier fundraising event. This will be Mrs. Dawson's third year as an event chair, and Mr. Moser's first.


"This event is a fun way to support our community library," Mrs. Dawson says. "Contributions are tax-deductible and all proceeds go to keeping the building up-to-date in our increasingly technical world. As always, we are very grateful to our donors, sponsors, and volunteers who support us each year and make this event possible."


"We haven't even mailed the invitations yet and we have already sold tickets," Mrs. Dawson adds. "This event sells out each year, so better get your tickets early."


Tickets are $100 per person and may be purchased now online: http://maryjacobs.org.
