2010 Library Tree Lane nets $24,000 to benefit Henderson Libraries

Funds will benefit district’s juvenile (grades 3-6) collection

HENDERSON, Nev.  – The numbers are in, and it’s official. Henderson Libraries’ 2010 Library Tree Lane, hosted by the Friends of Henderson Libraries, raised more money than any previous Library Tree Lane. The fundraiser raised $24,000 to benefit the district’s juvenile (grades 3-6) collection. (Last year it raised $21,000.)

An annual holiday-themed fundraising project by Friends of Henderson Libraries to benefit Henderson Libraries, Library Tree Lane features decorated holiday trees and wreaths which are sponsored by individuals, businesses and organizations throughout the community and then donated and delivered to charities following the gala. The program also offers children’s programs and a special Carr Chat. The celebration culminates with a ticketed gala reception and silent auction. The gala reception features a silent auction with nearly 150 beautifully decorated, themed gift baskets and live entertainment.
