Make it 2 M

Plans for the CHAIR-ity event are coming along nicely. This benefit for the new Ridgefield library will feature an auction for small student chairs that have been painted by local artists, a little library, pies and cakes, as well as other items donated by members of the community. The date has been moved to Friday, August 11, so please mark that on your calendar.

There are two things we still need to make this event a success. The first is hosts or hostesses to sponsor a table of eight. All the plastic ware and place settings will be provided by the caterer, so you will need to provide a centerpiece and find eight of your friends to pay $25 to come and help raise money for the library. We’ll provide plastic tablecloths, but you can bring your own if you’d rather.

The second thing we need is donations for a silent auction. Do you have a time-share you could donate?  Could you host a dinner party? Could you prepare a themed basket? Use your imagination to think of ideas that would sell at a dinner like this.

I look forward to hearing from you. Let’s make this a bang-up day for the new Ridgefield library. Call me at 887-2160 or
