Last weekend, we had our FOURTH annual APL Friends Gala & Auction with a special bonus this year... a murder mystery, starring a talented cast of folks from TinyTown (yes, including me).
We raised over $3300 in our silent and live auctions (all donated baskets and items), we had yummy nibbles and background music, everyone looked snazzy in their party duds, and the murder mystery was a ROUSING success!
I was so proud. :-)
This is one of our big fundraising events each year (besides the obligatory book sales), and everyone has a great time, and it's a great feather in the cap for APL!
I'd love to know what other "snazzy events" libraries put on to raise money, because I think ours ROCKS for such a small town. :-)
In any case, a few pictures of our theatrical production...
(BTW, I played a REALLY enthusiastic cop who rushed over to the "murder scene" while she was waiting for CSI to come on, hence the pajama bottoms)
