TTU library to hold 19th annual Champagne Gala Nov. 3

Raise your glass and raise some money for Tennessee Tech University's library at the Friends of the Library Foundation Champagne Gala.

The gala, now in its 19th year, is set for 7-9 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 3, at the Cumberland Expo Center.

"Our library is the largest and best in the region," said Winston Walden, library director. "While our first priority is to serve the TTU campus, we have become an invaluable resource to the surrounding communities as well. To meet everyone's needs, we need to stay current in all that we do. This event helps provide the funding to maintain the high expectations we set for ourselves."

For $17.50 a person, attendees can enjoy plenty of champagne and gourmet hors d'oeuvres while raising funds for the Friends of the Library Foundation.

"This is one of the parties to go to in our area," said Betty Case, a member of the library's foundation. "People come because they know they will have a good time -- people always enjoy the gala."

And while the featured beverage is champagne, attendees will have their choice of non-alcoholic beverages, from punch to coffee. Easy listening music will also set the mood for the evening.

Tickets may be purchased from any member of the library's board of directors, from the library or at the door the evening of the event. 
The Cumberland Expo Center is located at the intersection of Hwy. 111 and South Jefferson Avenue at 649 Horace Lewis Road. For more information, call Walden at 372-3408.
