Fund-Raiser Success!

Many, many thanks to all who attended our fund-raising event this past weekend. We declare the event a SUCCESS!
Our goal was to raise between $5000-6000 for a new permanent sign and flagpole. And we did just that thanks to donations, ticket sales, and an awesome auction! Calculations are that more than $5800 was netted! Hooray!
We'd like to thank our corporate co-sponsors Trane Company and INTAT. Their combined sponsorship paid for most of the food and drink, including the Dutch Boy sandwiches which were a HUGE success.

We would like to thank Mike & Ali Miller for preparing about 180 Dutch Boys. They were delish!
And many thanks to Brandon Bowsher of the Riverfront Taproom who served up the microbrewery wine and beer. Plus, Mr. Bowsher provided a handful of "flash" auction items.
The entertainment for the evening was WONDERFUL! Brian Sheehan did a great job with the auction and MC'ing the event. And music by Janet Miller Cox and the Dutch Boys (Ben Blanton & Cain Grocox) was heavenly. Thank you all!!
Our auction brought the most money of the night at more than $2,000! Items were donated by library board members (Laura Steenstrup, Denise Payne, Lou Starkey, Nicole Kirchoff, Tim Yazel/Yazel Group, Jean Kopf, and Matthew Easley), as well as our library attorney Julie Newhouse, and our library staff (Rhonda Albrecht, Jan Garrison, Pam Vogel, & Sue Prifogle)!

Other donors to our auction (and evening) included Debbie Bruce, Stan & Kay Richards, Kim Mahan, Cynthia Fincher, Megan Tucker, Rushville Florist, Rushville Abstract, Tweedy's, Kroger, Heather Meckes & Herdrich Petroleum, and Bob-O-Link.
Also thanks to David & Carter Payne and Alex FogaKoldyke for helping Denise Payne and Director Sue Prifogle set up for the event, and all the folks who helped us clean up.
