"This way people can enter the raffle of their choice," Shea said.
A list of prizes include gift cards of varying increments, an iPod, a gaming system and a signed Sabers hockey stick valued at approximately $250.
Additionally, the FFL is teaming up with 40 Below, a Syracuse organization of which Shea is a member. The group was created to connect, engage, and empower young adults in Central and Upstate New York.
"As an ambassador of the 'Live it. Love it. It's All here.' campaign, we wanted to bring people from all over CNY to a suburban public library, and show them the great things that we have to offer here," Shea said. "The Fayetteville Free Library is a progressive, vital community center; we are always looking for new ways to introduce our services to the community, and partnering with organizations like 40 Below creates great synergy and opportunity."
The fun-filled affair, sponsored by P&C of Fayetteville, will also have a cookout and bake sale of which resident bakers are still in need, Shea said. All proceeds will go to the library's operating fund.
"This event is so affordable that I anticipate seeing entire families coming to enjoy the afternoon, play games, and have lunch for a great price," she said. "And they can feel good because their money is going to their public library, which will then come back to them through our programs and services."
