Chamber of Commerce Makes Donation to Library

Nov 24th, 2014 at 6:18 PM

The Gates-Chili Chamber of Commerce raised $10,000 at their 2014 annual golf tournament and dinner auction at Brook Lea Country Club. The proceeds were split between the Friends of the Gates Public Library, the Friends of the Chili Public Library, and the Gates-Chili Chamber of Commerce. Chamber leaders presented each library with a check for $4,453.83. This money will be used to buy the Gates Public Library 11 iPads which will be used in technology instruction classes, programs where children create digital works of art, as well as made available for public use throughout the library. Without the financial support provided by the Gates-Chili Chamber of Commerce, we would not have been able to make these much needed additions to our library's services. The Gates Public Library and the Chili Public Library will again be the beneficiaries of the Gates-Chili Chamber of Commerce's 2015 golf tournament and dinner auction fundraiser. The date will be August 3rd, 2015 and the event will be held at the Brook Lea County Club. Details on how to purchase tickets will be forthcoming.
