Denim and Diamonds IV set for Sept. 24
Special to The Monitor
SEVEN POINTS–The Library at Cedar Creek Lake in Seven Points is announcing Denim and Diamonds IV, to be held Saturday, Sept. 24 at the Pinnacle Country Club.
The library depends heavily on this event to generate sufficient operating funds, and last year’s event generated approximately 50 percent of the annual operating budget.
Without such success, the library would be in dire financial condition.
We depend on area library patrons and friends to make the event a success, and we encourage your participation.
Sponsorships are currently being sold by the Board of Directors, as well as the Friends of the Library. These members have been kind enough to volunteer their time, and they are available at the library as well.
Jim Taylor is heading the sponsorship effort, and can be reached at (903) 340-4644.
Gloria Campos, evening news anchor on Channel 8 in Dallas, has again generously volunteered to serve as Mistress of Ceremonies at the Pinnacle Club.
A weekend homeowner on Cedar Creek Lake, Campos shares our ongoing interest in having a well-funded and successful library.
Participants will enjoy her personality and she is always available for conversation during the event.
Music and co-hosting duties will be provided by our own Dino Perelli, who is always entertaining and a great stimulator of activity during the event.
Dinner will be prepared by the chef and his staff at the Pinnacle Club and will feature London broil, as participants remain dressed in Denim and Diamonds to continue the theme.
Live and silent auctions always feature something for everyone.
The live auction will offer gourmet dining in Dallas, as well as, local, fun trips with a regional to international range at a spectacular value, along with other offerings.
Some of the live auction items include:
• Four nights for two, in Washington, D.C., including a Behind the Scenes Tour of the U.S. Capitol Building with a noted historian including four nights at the Hyatt Regency and round trip airfare.
• Four nights with deluxe accomodations at either the Westin Maui Resort or the Westin Waikiki Moana Surfrider and round trip airfare for two.
• Luxury outdoor furniture set from Solar Screens/Fred Kurlander.
• Three nights Sonoma VIP Wine Experience including three nights at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn and Spa, a wine country chauffeured tour, wine tastings and food at two award-winning wineries and round trip airfare for two.
• Five nights in London at the Hyatt Regency “The Churchill” and round trip airfare for two.
• Disney World Adventure for four with a four night stay at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld Hotel in Orlando, Fla., near SeaWorld, Walt Disney World, Discovery Cove and Universal Studios, along with an $875 Disney Gift Card redeemable for admission, food, souvenirs and more. Also includes a round trip airfare for four.
• A keg party with food and beverages for you and 39 of your best friends at Cedar Isle Restaurant.
The silent auction will have about 75 items which also offer great value, thanks to the generosity of local merchants and other donors.
Individual ticket sales should be available beginning the last week in August.
Participants are encouraged to become a sponsor to reap additional benefits.
Sponsorships begin at $350 and depending on size of the donation, can include reserved seating, event publicity and recognition, such as bricks or tiles permanently placed at the library entrance.
