Patterson Library will be kicking off its fundraising season with An Evening of Fine Taste on Saturday, April 30, from 6 to 8 p.m.

The event, sponsored by the Patterson Society, will feature a selection of wines donated by local wineries paired with hors d'oeuvres and desserts. Grammy Award-winner Kent Knappenberger will provide musical entertainment on the harp.

Tickets for the event are $40 per person and can be purchased by visiting the front desk at the Patterson Library, or through a library trustee. All proceeds will go towards library programs and services. A prize basket of wines and cheeses will be raffled off during the night.

"We always look forward to An Evening of Fine Taste," said Erin Hauenstein, library director. "The Patterson Society cares deeply about the library. Members and trustees work so hard to make this night fun for everyone and raise money to upkeep this wonderful library."

Any persons with young children will be able to utilize the event's free babysitting service, which will be located downstairs in the children's library. While this service is free, tips are welcomed.

The Patterson Society supports the programs, materials and services of Patterson Library through financial or volunteer memberships and fundraisers. For more information about the Patterson Society or An Evening of Fine Taste, call 3262154, or email Hauenstein at
