An Evening to RememberAn Evening to Remember

x_eveningtorem2The Scripps Miramar Ranch Library and the Friends of the Library (SRFOL) recently celebrated its 25th anniversary with its fundraiser Celebrate25: An Evening to Remember. The Scripps Miramar Ranch Library was first established as a storefront location in 1986, and then opened its current location in 1993. Celebrate25 was a way to honor Scripps Ranch history and the work the library and SRFOL have done to serve the community.

Approximately 120 guests were in attendance and enjoyed a night of tasty hors d’oeuvres, live music, libations including wine and beer donated by Ballast Point and the new local Savagewood Brewing Company, and a silent auction. The courtyard at the library was decorated with hundreds of twinkling lights, and despite the rainy weather, guests took part in docent-led tours featuring the history and art of the library and danced to the music of the Scripps Ranch Rock-N-Blues Band. The night was also emceed by Scripps Ranch resident and Sunny 98.1 host Dave Mason.

The SRFOL has raised more than $15,000 so far of its goal of $25,000. Donations are still being accepted to reach that goal and all donations will be matched by the SRFOL. With this money, the SRFOL is looking to add sustainable landscape features to the library courtyard, including a shade structure and additional seating for reading and relaxing.
