Every other year the Wellesley Free Library Foundation‘s Gala is the volunteer group’s signature fundraising event, anticipated by the town for letting loose as a community as well as lifting paddles for funds. The Gala will be held April 7, 2022 at the Wellesley Country Club.
The event will begin with a 6pm VIP reception on the Sunset Terrace, with raw bar hosted by award-winning chef Jeremy Sewall. Dinner will begin at 7:30pm in the main ballroom and will include a program emcee’d by news anchor Lisa Hughes, and a live auction.
This year’s Gala highlights Library Foundation’s near completion of a $600,000 grant that supported the recent renovation of the library’s main branch. Funds raised in the Gala’s “raise the paddle” appeal will support technology enhancements at the Library.
