Evy Nordley Award Alum Rebrands Themed Gala Fundraiser

Spies, Lies & Literature

The Friends of Ramsey County Libraries is bringing back its popular winter gala for a third year, and under a new guise – or disguise, as the case may be. After two successful years as the Great Gatsby Gala, the 2016 fundraiser is rebranding with a new literary theme: Spies, Lies and Literature.
 
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to join with the Friends at the 
Roseville Public Library on Saturday, February 6 (6:30-9:30 p.m.). Costumes or festive evening attire are encouraged but not required. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes. 

Whether you favorite sleuth is Ian Fleming’s agent James Bond, Agatha Christie’s beloved Hercule Poirot, or the inimitable Sherlock Holmes, this night will offer something for everyone. Dancing, silent and live auctions, a spy hunt, and wine and hors d’oeuvres are among the highlights.

Proceeds allow the Friends to add needed items to the lending collections of libraries in Maplewood, Mounds View, New Brighton, North St. Paul, Roseville, Shoreview and White Bear Lake. Tickets are only $50 in advance. This can be done online, or by check. At-the-door registrations are also welcome.

In its earlier incarnation as the Great Gatsby Gala, this innovative gala earned the Friends of Ramsey County Libraries an Evy Nordley Award for Best Project certificate of recognition. Click here to read all about it!
