Pecan Grove Elementary School’s library is struggling under last year’s budget cuts, and now concerned parents are trying to make a difference.
Shereen Lary, owner Mesologic Spa, Historic Richmond and concerned parent has organized a silent auction March 23, 2012, with all proceeds going to the Library’s Bound to Stay Bound fundraiser.
“Lynn Pharr, librarian, Pecan Grove Elementary, hopes this event will help meet her goal of raising $800 for new books,” Lary said.
Pecan Grove Elementary, according to Pharr, is blessed to have students who love to read and enjoy both fiction and non-fiction, but new books are desperately needed.
“As everyone is aware, the funding for schools has been cut and the budget for adding new books was drastically reduced,” Pharr said.
The silent auction will be hosted in conjunction with Girls’ Night Out, held at Mesologic Spa on March 23, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
“Girls’ Night Out, is going to be a wonderful evening for women in the area who are interested in learning more about natural beauty creams, organic products, mini-facials, make-overs, chair massages, Bollywood lessons, and more. So we are looking for the community to come out and support this great cause,” Lary said.
The event is $10 with proceeds to the library.
