Saturday, September 27 at 6:30pm at the Hilton Garden Inn (12080 S. Strang Line Rd. Olathe, KS 66062)

Tickets are $75 per person ($35 is tax-deductible). Sponsorships are also available. Please RSVP by September 20.

Ticket proceeds support the Olathe Public Library Foundation, a component fund of the Community Fund of Johnson County established for the purpose of enhancing facilities, providing books, and adding other services for the Olathe Public Library System. While public funds make libraries possible, it is private gifts that make them flourish. The Olathe Public Library Foundation ensures that the library system remains a vital community resource by providing a long-term supplemental funding program to assist in providing services not available through traditional tax-base funding. Foundation contributions are used to offset some of the costs of library system automation, expansion of reference and circulating collections, programming, and assistance for the disabled.
