Love the Library: A Grand Opening Gala for Pinney Library

February 29 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Be among the first to enter the doors of the new Pinney Library! Join us from 6–10 p.m. Saturday, February 29, 2020, for “Love the Library: A Grand Opening Gala for Pinney Library.” The Pinney Library Gala will be the first glimpse of the completed $10 million project. 

Gala and grand opening event sponsorship opportunities are now available and are a great way to support the new east side library. 

Tickets are on sale now! Individual tickets are $175, or purchase a two-ticket Community Sponsor package for $500. $125 of each ticket is tax-deductible.

Tables are available for Presenting, Sustaining and Contributing level sponsors and casual seating is available throughout the library. 

The event will include food stations, beer and wine provided by east side restaurants, breweries and other businesses; musical entertainment by bass player Carlos Ramos, guitarist Angela Puerta, Leotha Stanley and Friends, and Lynda & the Zeros; a large silent auction; and more!

All proceeds raised beyond the capital campaign balance will seed the library’s endowment and programming funds.

Watch for more details about the Pinney Library Gala and grand opening events in March!

Learn more about the new Pinney Library on our Pinney campaign page.
