Thank you to the Pagosa Springs community and beyond for helping to make our first annual The Library Affair a smashing success! Through all of your support, we raised over $100,000 in support our Mountains of Opportunity campaign to expand and renovate your Ruby Sisson Library.
Thank you to our incredible sponsors, talented table decorators, hard-working volunteers and dedicated planning committee. Without your commitment to the Ruby Sisson Library Foundation, none of this would be possible.
The Library Affair featured seventeen creatively decorated tables with table-settings for up to eight people based on books chosen by some of Pagosa’s most talented table decorators.
The winner of the prestigious Pagosa Pulitzer Prize award was Team To Kill a Mockingbird who raised $7765 through the online voting. Way to go Robin Brobst, Terrie Frahm, and Jenny Highum! Thank you to Jim Lutomski for creating the beautiful award.
The winner of the Ruby Award was Team The Drunken Botanist whose table won the highest bid at $3300. Way to go Mary Helen Cammack and Mary Kurt-Mason! Thank you to Mary Kurt-Mason for creating the beautiful award.
