Great food, great music, great cause

From a press release:

The Teton County Library and Library Foundation invite you to join in an elegant evening of delicious food, libations and live music by the Pam Drews Phillips Quartet at the Annual Library Benefit at Four Seasons Resort on Friday, December 4 at 7 p.m. in the Cottonwood Ballroom.

Tickets become available on Monday, Nov. 2, at the library’s Front Desk and online at The $100 ticket not only provides a festive evening, it also supports an array of Library Foundation-sponsored events, programs and even green energy at the library.

Only 400 tickets are available for the evening, and Foundation Associate Director Pauline Towers-Dykeman urges everyone secure their ticket now.

“This extraordinary Benefit sells out every year, so please email, text or tweet your friends now, reminding them to get their tickets.”

Donations to the Library Foundation help fund library programs and projects, as well as live events with world-renowned authors. This year, the Page to the Podium speakers’ series presents a free talk with author Barry Lopez on Thursday, December 3 at 6:30 p.m. at the Center for the Arts. Tickets for Lopez’s talk will become available on Monday, November 16, with the presentation of a library card at the library’s Front Desk.

In addition to exceptional food and drink as well as the Four Seasons’ legendary hospitality, there will be opportunities to support the Library by purchasing raffle tickets to win a Kindle or by getting some holiday shopping done. “A ‘gift certificate’ telling someone you’ve made a contribution in their honor to the Library Foundation is always the right size and never goes out of style!” says Towers-Dykeman.

For the Library Benefit, a free shuttle will be provided for ticket holders from the Teton Village parking lot to the Four Seasons Resort from 6:45 to 11 p.m. Special overnight rates for partygoers are available. For more information on room rates, please contact the Four Seasons directly at 732-5000.
