Sparwood public library gears up for SPOOKTACULAR

The Sparwood Public Library is getting ready for its biggest fundraiser of the year.

The Sparwood Public Library is getting ready for its biggest fundraiser of the year. The bi-annual event known as Spooktacular is an adults only evening filled with fun and excitement for everyone attending. The main highlights of the evening will be a silent auction with many items donated by local businesses, individuals and vendors, several art displays by local artists, wine and cheese, and of course costumes. Dressing up is optional, but this year’s fun theme is Egyptian. Spooktacular is a hugely attended event and tickets must be purchased to attend. Tickets are ten dollars and can be bought in advance at the Sparwood Public Library.

Also, during the evening the lucky winners of the raffle draw will be announced. Raffle tickets are currently being sold and will continue be sold until 8 p.m. on the 28th  for great prizes such as a $1300 travel voucher from Mountain HighTravel, a oil painting by a local artist or a Zoom teeth whiting from the Sparwood Dental Clinic. Tickets are ten dollars each and can  also purchased at the Library.

All funds from the Spookacular and the raffle will go towards new carpet for the library, which is expected to cost over twenty thousand dollars.

 

Spooktacular will take place on Friday, October 28th from 7-9 p.m. The Sparwood Public Library will be closed during that afternoon to prepare for the event.
