Just a few more days 'til we Do the Dewey!

Don't forget - our annual FUNd-raising event, "Do the Dewey," is this Saturday, April 25, 2009. We know that the current economic situation is putting a strain on so many people. We still believe that Dewey is a great value for you, the giver. Since our generous donors provide so much of the food, drinks and entertainment for free, you get an amazing evening on the town for just $35 per ticket, while the Library and the Rotary Club of Des Plaines receive substantial donations toward future projects.

What does your $35 Dewey ticket provide?:
  • Unlimited food, beer, wine and soft drinks - no one leaves Dewey hungry or thirsty!
  • Food is also part of the entertainment, as we feature tastings of gourmet chocolate, artisan cheese and top quality oils and vinegars;
  • Live music from one of Chicago's most sought-after show bands, Bopology;
  • Chair massage and a chance to try the Wii fit;
  • Digital camera assistance from the wizards of the DP Camera Club - print out a souvenir postcard to take home;
  • Amaze your favorite teenager - get an airbrush tattoo!
  • Test your investigative powers with CSI:Dewey - two police officers/authors will recreate a crime scene and let you help solve the case;
  • Learn about everything from watercolor painting to the versatile uses of herbs;
  • Be wowed by the talents of our Strolling Psychic Sorcerer;
  • Try your luck with raffles, guessing games, a scavenger hunt for cash and silent auction - prizes range from fine wines to gift cards for popular restaurants, from strands of lustrous pearls to Cubs tickets - with so many great prizes, you're sure to be a winner!
Today's chilly downpour might tempt you to "wait and see" - but remember: Dewey tickets are $40 at the door, so you save by buying in advance. (That extra $5 can buy you a raffle ticket that wins big!) As the song says, "Grey skies are gonna clear up," and Saturday's outlook is spectacular. So buy your tickets today - you can purchase them online here or stop by the Library during regular business hours.
