Join Us for Our Fundraiser “Strengthening Our Roots” – May 4

April 14, 2016 - 1:07pm -- sshea

Support your library! We invite you to enjoy delicious hors d’oevres, drinks and entertainment in elegant surroundings for our 2016 fundraiser, “Strengthening Our Roots,” 6:00PM -9:00PM at Hotel Providence, 139 Mathewson Street. Money raised through sponsorships, ticket sales and a 50/50 raffle promotion will be used to buy new books and other library materials and fund educational and cultural programming at PCL’s nine neighborhood locations.

Guests of Honor will be Congressman David Cicilline and PCL “Founder,” Linda Kushner.  Congressman Cicilline was Mayor of Providence when Providence Public Library (PPL) announced that it lacked the resources to maintain all of its branches. He arranged for PPL to transfer all nine of its neighborhood branches to the City and assigned their management to PCL.  Linda Kushner, one of PCL’s four original founders, worked tirelessly to raise awareness, support and funding for PCL.

“Strengthening Our Roots” is generously sponsored by IGT, RDW Group, Adler, Pollock & Sheehan P.C., United Healthcare, Santander Bank, Residential Properties Ltd, CVS Health, McKenney, Quigley, Izzo & Clarkin LLP, Hotel Providence and Silvershell Hospitality Services. Paul Alexander Williams, Mibbit Threats and Paul Duquette will provide the musical entertainment.

Tickets for “Strengthening Our Roots” are $100 each. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit
