The Stratford Library Board of Trustees will present its major fund-raiser for the library on Saturday, September 25th beginning at 6 p.m. The seventeenth annual gala event, entitled “The 70’s Project”, will celebrate popular music of the 1970’s. It will be out of sight!
A major tribute band from New York City channeling classic “Chicago” songs, “The 70’s Project”, will perform with brass and horns to blast out that distinctive 1970’s sound.
Here’s the lowdown:
“The 70’s Project” is a gala evening of music, dancing, appetizers, dinner, fine beverages and delectable desserts.
Break out those bellbottoms and tube socks, as patrons are encouraged to wear 70’s attire.
A silent auction will also be included in the festivities and donations are being accepted.
This year’s event will be held at the Oronoque Country Club in Stratford and all proceeds will benefit the Library’s collections and programs.
Honorary Chair of the gala is Mayor Laura Hoydick.
Current major sponsors include the Stratford Mayor’s Charity Golf Tournament; Berchem Moses, PC; People’s United Bank; Bridgeport Fittings; Halper Keating Family Foundation; Immacula Cann & Family; Joel F. Pleban, CPA, LLC; Kamco Supply Corporation; Mitchell & Sheahan, PC; The Milford Bank; Ashcroft; Barnum Animal Hospital; Florek & O’Neill; and Hubbell Heaters.
