Construction on the new Peninsula Community Library is well underway on the corner of Island View Road and Center Road. And as we reported, they recently reached their capital campaign fundraising goal of $2.5 million. But that doesn’t mean they’re done fundraising! They’re still seeking funds for interior furniture, a children’s garden and more.

That’s where “Wine Down With Chocolate and a Silent Auction” comes in. This fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday, May 18, 7 to 9 p.m., at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 12675 Center Road on the Old Mission Peninsula.
Tickets are available for $30/each at Peninsula Community Library, at the door that night, or you can get them from me! I’m tasked with selling four tickets to the event, and I’ll even deliver them to your house. The fundraiser includes a sampling of wine and chocolate delicacies, as well as a silent auction, which will begin prior to the event, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the church. Select “take it now” items will be available.
A wide array of silent auction items are available, including an aerial tour, cooking lessons, spa packages, gift certificates from local businesses, tickets to the 2019 Traverse City Film Festival, an assortment of OMP items from our online store, the Old Mission Peninsula Store and more.
Feel free to contact the library with any questions, (231) 223-7700.
