Thank you everyone for making our first-ever Surrey Soiree a success!
The inaugural gala for Surrey Libraries' Literacy for Life campaign was sold out! The crowd of 300 at the Surrey Soiree was entertained by renowned Canadian jazz artist Denzal Sinclaire, following an elegant dinner al fresco in the Surrey City Centre plaza. Later they danced the night away to Agent C and Top Secret.
"We're thrilled by the tremendous community support," said Surrey Libraries chief librarian Melanie Houlden, "The money raised will contribute significantly to our programs for children and adults who need help with basic literacy. Last year, our programs assisted more than 150-thousand people, and in the year ahead we want to do even more."
The Literacy for Life campaign supports Early Literacy, Workplace Literacy, Diversity/Multicultural programming and Read-Ability Services provided by Surrey Libraries.
