National Library Week 2014 : Lives Change @ The Library

 

Now we can reveal all of the facts. First, go mark your calendar for APRIL 12. The first part of the fund raiser will be a casual intimate luncheon for Neil and his wife Debbie. Twenty sponsors and their guests will be able to mingle with Neil. Since the number of sponsorships is limited and several have already been taken, if you are interested let us know soon and we will save you two tickets. Sponsorships are on two levels Business/Corporate for $300.00 dollars and Individual sponsorship for $200. The Business/Corporate sponsors will each receive two tickets to the luncheon and four (4) tickets to the keynote address and reception which will be held at Olde Town Church. Individual sponsors will receive 2 tickets to the luncheon as well as 2 tickets to the keynote address and reception. In addition, if you are interested in becoming a Patron of the Library you may elect to join at this time for the $100 membership fee which will also entitle you to 2 tickets to the keynote address and reception. There is also a Patron membership for $100.00 and you will receive 2 tickets to the night event. The night event, held at Olde Town Church will start at 6pm with Neilís presentation in the sanctuary. Tickets to the night event only are $20. Since we have been told the sanctuary only seats between 185-200 people there is obviously limited seating so please make your reservations early. If you have not had the opportunity to see Olde Town Church since the renovations this will be the perfect opportunity to do so. Please feel free to email me at modestyann@gmail.com if you have any questions or would like to be put on the ticket list. Neil will also be bringing some of his books to sell and sign. We are not sure which ones he will bring but it might be a good time to put back a Christmas or Birthday gift early, especially, if he brings his books on famous sportsmen. Every man is going to want a copy of that one. Please share this post so all can see this wonderful event coming to Brookhaven. FOL hopes this is the first of many literary events we will sponsor.
