Blue Velvet featured at Winter Gala
The Fayetteville-Lincoln County Friends of the Library will host the 3rd annual Winter Gala on Saturday, Jan. 25, from 6-8 p.m. at the Fayetteville-Lincoln County Library.
This year’s musical guest, The Blue Velvet Combo, will be playing throughout the evening. The Blue Velvet Combo plays old jazz standards from the big band era and an eclectic mix of light pop and rock. The band features vocalist Ellen Hood with the musical backing of Dan Charles on violin and Bob and Bartie Scott on guitar and bass respectively. A silent auction will be held featuring fantastic items from local businesses, artists, and patrons of the library.
Members of the FOL will be serving wine and hors d’oeuvres. Tickets for this year’s event are $35 and can be purchased from Friends of the Library board members, the Bank of Lincoln County and Carter’s Drug Store as well as online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2014-winter-gala-tickets-9519484033.
This event has been instrumental in helping the Friends raise funds to support many different programs at the library including additions to the Genealogy Room and the Teen Advisory Board.
