Gala 2018 Donors

Thank you so much to everyone that supported the Wissahickon Valley Public Library's Sips, Nips and Friendship Fundraiser that was held at the Main Library in Blue Bell on April 8. Thanks to your generous support, we cleared over $17,000, which was more than twice as much as our next best event ever. Attendees were very pleased with the variety of the 93 wonderful items in the silent auction.  People really enjoyed the wine, beer and spirits tastings as well as the delicious appetizers that the participating restaurants provided.  Many people got a book evaluated and all had the opportunity to celebrate the library's work in serving our community.

Your generous support will improve library services for children, teens and adults. Thanks to you, we will plan more educational programs for residents in our community.  In order to do that, we plan to renovate our Ambler Branch to make it accessible for all and to create a designated space for educational programs, meeting spaces for community groups and rooms for students to study.

Bless your heart for helping us to continue to do what we love to do — to serve the needs of the Wissahickon Valley Community!

We especially thank our sponsors, food and beverage vendors, and those who donated items for our silent auction. Also many, many thanks to everyone who bid on items or attended the event!  We couldn't do what we do without you!
