The Gates Public Library Foundation is seeking donations and table aponaor for our Wine Tasting Fundraiser Presented by ACM Global Laboratories. The wine tasting will be held on Saturday, April 29th from 7:00 PM until 9:00 PM at the Gates Pubic Library. Tickets will be available at the Gates Public Library checkout desk and online at www.gateslibrary.com in the beginning of March.

Wine samplings will be provided by A Gust of Sun Winery. The evening's events will feature a sampling of wine, hors d'oeuvres, desserts, silent auctions, and a wine pull. Live music will also be available to entertain the evening's guests. In addition to supporting a fun evening of entertainment, proceeds from the event will be given to the Gates Public Library to benefit an important early childhood literacy initiative.

Each year over 50 children in the Gates community are unable to attend preschool through the school district’s current lottery placement system. The Gates Public Library is seeking to combat this lack of opportunity by partnering with the Gates Chili Central School District to create a community education space within the library. Your support will afford 54 children in the opportunity to attend preschool at the library from 2017 onward, and countless others throughout the years. This space will host three preschool classrooms, after school activities for children and teens, and an expanded lineup of adult education classes. Everyone in the community will benefit from our efforts.

What’s more, this space will be used to greatly expand our educational and recreational programs and special events for everyone in the community, from infants to seniors, and everyone in between.

The Gates Public Library Foundation needs businesses and individuals to sponsor tables. For $300 a business or individual can sponsor a table such as the dessert table, wine pull table, silent auction table, or hors d'oeuvres table. We also need donations of wine, gifts, jewelry, gift baskets, gift certificates, collectables, and memorabilia that we can use during our silent auction and wine pull.
