On Friday night at Grand Prix New York, Mount Kisco Public Library held a fundraiser. While well over 100 attendees listened to live music and enjoyed the catering by Grand Prix New York, the Mount Kisco Public Library through the Moses Taylor Post of the American Legion sold over 450 tickets for a raffle, raising over $40,000.
The following need to be thanked by the community for their contributions to the evening’s success:
•Daniele Churchill and Churchill’s of Mount Kisco: Daniele Churchill, owner of Churchill’s of Mount Kisco donated a blue convertible 2008 BMW 128i to be raffled off for the library. A link for Churchill’s of Mount Kisco is provided in the right margin of this story.
•Mayor Michael Cindrich for conceiving the event and coordinating the different parties. His efforts are more than most mayors in Westchester undertake.
•Jim Diamond of Diamond Properties for donating a 50 inch plasma television and promoting the event. Mount Kisco would be a better place if all property owners were as involved in the community.
•Grand Prix New York for providing the food at cost, promoting the event and donating a dinner and racing for ten as a raffle prize.
•Michael Nappi and his band for providing the entertainment. The band was outstanding.
•American Legion, Moses Taylor, Jr., Post 136 for co-sponsoring the event and doing what they always do best, serve the community.
•Sheila Smith, last but not least, for organizing the event so well that it ran seamlessly. Sheila, an event planner for Square Events, has created a niche as an event planner for fundraising activities.
The only complaint of the evening was that none of the Mount Kisco residents in attendance won the BMW convertible but the winner did purchase a ticket and by doing so, donated to our local library.
