Ex Libris Sets Record for Fundraising at $75,000
Wisconsin craft beers and local brunch fare from 34 of the area’s top restaurants were again a huge hit at Madison Public Library Foundation’s Ex Libris Vol. VI: Beer for Brunch on November 4. For the first time, guests were able to bid online in an extensive silent auction of rare items and experiences.
The auction and a chocolate bar raffle with prizes like ruby and diamond earrings from Studio Jewelers helped the event raise $75,000 to support Madison Public Library programs, services and collections. DJ Rob Dz and The Whiskey Farm entertained the audience with music. Next year’s Ex Libris will be October 27, with a new two-year theme.
