Seussapalooza 8 raised $10,000 for the Roslyn Public Library.
Thank you to our donors for their generous contributions, to our volunteers who made it all happen, and to everybody from the community who came out that night to support the library and have some fun!
Seussapalooza is our biggest and best fundraiser of the year. It is a family-friendly event that includes an auction of unique products and services, a chili feed of dozens of kinds of homemade chili and cornbread, and quirky entertainment that features music, dance, magic and all manner of live performances. We also hold a “dessert dash” fundraiser that specifically raises money for the library’s Gary Parson Book Fund, an endowment fund that purchases books and other materials for the library each year. All of the proceeds from this event benefit the Roslyn Library, and to date, we have raised approximately $57,000 with this event. The library has used this money to buy computers, equipment, hundreds of books and other materials for its collection, and has held a multitude of programs for both kids and adults.
