Spring has sprung and that means our annual fundraiser, "Do The Dewey," is just around the corner! We hope you'll mark your calendar for Saturday, April 25, 2009 from 7-10 PM, when DPPL joins forces with the Rotary Club of Des Plaines for an amazing night of food, drink and interactive entertainment.
Even in this harsh economic climate, "Do the Dewey" is a great value, with tickets just $35 in advance, $40 at the door. That one low price includes all you can eat and drink, plus 3 full hours of live entertainment. This year's schedule includes the big band sounds of Bopology, a Strolling Psychic Sorcerer, chocolate tastings, chair massage, an authentic crime scene reenactment and investigation for "CSI" fans, Wii gaming, digital photography including print out postcards you can take with you, and so much more. Quite frankly, you probably can't park in downtown Chicago for 3 hours for $35! The evening will also include raffles and drawings for fabulous prizes, from pearls to wine to gift certificates. Thanks to the generous donations of our sponsors, you can easily eat, drink and win back even more than what you spent on your ticket. Plus, you'll have a great time while helping us accomplish great things, because your ticket price supports your public library and the good deeds of the Rotary Club.
So, get your advance tickets today, either by purchasing them at the Library during regular business hours, or buy them online through our secure service. Please tell your friends and neighbors, too - once you've Done the Dewey, you want to come back every year! It's a low cost evening of fun and excitement that also gives back to the community. Watch for updates as we add other entertainers and services to the Dewey schedule - and I hope to see you there.
