Sponsoring this event is a great way to be included in all advertising for the event, as well as placement in the printed program distributed at the event, as well as signage prominently displayed in the Library the night of the event. Silent auction donations can be items of any value. Some examples include: gift cards, gift baskets, admission tickets, arts & crafts, seasonal items, etc. This is a great way to get customers into your business while supporting the Library.
