HLF Holiday Gala

Each year HLF presents our Holiday Gala – a festive evening that rings in the holiday season and celebrates the richness of the library community. It is our signature event and one long-time supporters look forward to attending. Lovely food, fine wines, and the fine jazz rhythms of Nice ‘N Easy set the stage for an enjoyable evening of fun and conviviality.

We feature the Helen Everett Award recipient, recap the year of HLF activities, and host a sterling Silent and Live Auction. Many artists, local businesses, and individuals show their support through the donation of items for the auction and sponsor the event.
