Redwood City Library Foundation to Host Special "Latin Flavor" Fundraiser on November 21

Redwood City, CA - November 13, 2003 - Each year, the Redwood City Library Foundation holds a special fundraiser to help support some of the great programs that the Redwood City Library provides to the community. This year, the gala event is entitled “Sabor Latino/Latin Flavor!” and it takes place on Friday, November 21, 2003, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the Redwood City Public Library. The festive affair features savory south-of- the-border food, a raffle of luxury items, and guest speaker Rosa Perez, President of Cañada College. The Foundation’s sister group, the Friends of the Library, will be selling books and audiovisual items during the event.

Among the programs that the Foundation fundraiser supports are the Traveling Story time, the Teen Homework Center, and Dad and Me @ the Library, all very successful and well-used programs. One of the Foundation’s current projects is helping to provide funding for books, videos, CDs, DVDs, and other Library materials.

This promises to be a fun, exciting, and rewarding event – the public is invited and encouraged to attend and take part in helping our community’s library to better serve the public. Tickets are $45 per person and $400 for a group of 10. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served at 6 pm, and a welcome by Foundation Co-Presidents Sandra Cooperman and Rosanne Foust and an address by Rosa Perez begin at 8 pm. To get tickets, please call (650) 780-7032.

The Redwood City Public Library offers many free programs for children, adults, and families, and helps our community to “understand the past, prepare for the future, and thrive in the present.” For more information about library events and services you may access the library’s home page at or call 780-7026.
