Rita Schiano & Rob A
Jacob Edwards Library
Monday, Jun. 5, 6:30 - 7:30 pm
It's time for the Annual Artful Friends Raffle! With a huge variety of raffle prizes to choose from, this year's raffle has something for everybody!  Enter to win gift certificates to local restaurants and businesses, original artwork and photography, handcrafted items of all kinds, and more!
  Only $5.00 buys you 25 chances to spread out however you wish. All prizes will be on display in the Main Hall during June, and winners will be drawn June 29. Proceeds support the Friends of the Library, an organization which sponsors library programs and events like Summer Reading, movie nights, museum passes, and so much more. Opening night: Featured entertainers and perennial favorites Rita Schiano and Rob Adams will kick off the raffle, on Monday, June 5th at 6:30 pm. Rita is a former New York jazz singer, and Rob has been a musical fixture in the area since the 1980's. Watching them perform together is always a treat! The event is free and open to the public, and attendees will have the first shot at purchasing their raffle chances.   Closing & Prize Drawing: The Annual Pride in Southbridge Event, featuring a performance by The BeeKeepers will be held on Thursday, June 29 at 6:30 pm. The music of The BeeKeepers is described as Classy-Swampy-Bluesy-Folk that Sticks to Your Soul Like Honey: three women, two voices, over a dozen instruments.  Our Annual Pride in Southbridge event is in support of the LGBTQ community, with the goal of fostering inclusion and understanding.  Prize winners will be drawn immediately following the concert, at 7:30 pm. If your name is drawn, you do not need to be present to win - but we hope you will come and enjoy the music anyway!     The Friends of Jacob Edwards Library would like to acknowledge and thank all the supporters  who have helped to make this Raffle a success over the years.
