Wit, Wisdom and Wine
The annual Wit, Wisdom & Wine fundraising event, sponsored by the Rochester Public Library Foundation, is a fun-filled evening. There are delicious hors d'oeuvres to be eaten, delightful speakers to be enjoyed and dreamy gifts to be auctioned.
Many thanks to everyone for the tremendous help in making WWW 2015 a great success!!
210 people attended a great evening with interesting programs by 10 different speakers. Fabulous food was made by Omar’s Kitchen and great wines were poured by Apollo Liquors. Many local businesses, library staff, community members and Board Members donated great items for our Silent Auction.
Special thanks to Hight & Randall for donations of items for our Jewelry Raffle and to our Fabulous Sponsors!
Just over $36,000 gross was raised, which is $5,000 more than the previous year!
We tried a few new ideas in set-up and food distribution that we think streamlined the process.
Thank You to everyone who purchased tickets and or volunteered to make this year’s event so successful.
All proceeds from the event support the mission and goals of the Rochester Public Library Foundation, which is to increase support for the Rochester Public Library while educating the community about the Library’s role in meeting community needs.
