The Fayetteville Free Library will hold its annual fundraiser, "Explore the World at the FFL," on Friday May 20.
This year the event will feature gourmet food from five countries: Italy, France, Germany, Chile and Argentina. Attendees can sample wines from all of these countries and purchase bottles of their favorite wines as they leave.
"Our annual fundraiser will be extra special this year as we are featuring food and wine pairings from countries around the world, a theme that is in keeping with this year's Summer Reading theme, 'Explore the World,' said Executive Director Sue Considine. "We are grateful for our community's continued support of this event; the revenue raised in support of library operations allows us to continue to provide you with the highest quality professional and ever evolving library services. With your support of events such as this annual fundraiser and your vote in May, the library is proud to carry on our tradition of providing you, our community, progressive library services in a state of the art environment."
There are many ways to support the FFL at this time of year. Community members can buy tickets and attend the event, purchase an advertisement in the event program, donate to the silent auction or purchase raffle tickets for $5 each for a Stickley Mirror or Mackenzie-Childs Trapeze Serving Bowl.
