Each year my community throws a gala to raise money for illnesses and poverty. It's a small thing we do, but it's a big help to those who need it. This year the gala was held at our new library.
There were many firsts at this year's gala. It was the opening of our new library and the first gala to be held outside of our city hall. My family raised over twenty thousand dollars this year and bout a table at the gala well over $44,000. We've always been big contributors, but this was the first time we raised so much money.
I'm still proud of the efforts everyone made. The night if the gala was incredible. The space was decorated beautifully. The servers were dressed like librarians and served with books.
I thought the entire event was a success. From the funds raised to the dinnerware. The guests were all dressed to the nines as well. The space was well lit and the finger food was good.
