PCL's Spring fundraiser, The Future is Now, took place at Hotel Providence on June 1. Board members, PCL staff, friends, corporate sponsors and other supporters of the Library gathered to enjoy fine hors d'oevres, drinks and excellent jazz from Joe Potenza's trio.
Sadly, the event’s honoree, Senator Jack Reed, was called away to Iraq and couldn’t attend. His Community Affairs Coordinator, Erin Arcand, came as his representative. However, both Congressman Cicilline and Mayor Jorge Elorza attended and both had warm words for the audience about PCL's work.
The fundraiser raised $32,000 and $5,500 of 50/50 raffle tickets were sold. Thanks to everyone who supported us! The Future is Now is generously sponsored by IGT, RDW Group, Adler, Pollock & Sheehan, P.C., Jyothi Subramaniam, UnitedHealthcare, McKenney, Quigley &Clarkin, LLP, Residential Properties Ltd and WD & Associates, Inc.
