You never know what you’ll discover at MPL!
We’re gonna party like its 1959! Toss on your swankiest duds and prepare yourself to Trip the Light Kitschtastic! Join Manitowoc Aluminum Kitsch-Mas Inc. and Friends of Manitowoc Public Library from 6-9PM on Saturday, December 10, at Manitowoc Public Library for a snazzy evening of Evergleam Extravagance! This fundraiser will feature period-accurate finger food, an array of vintage beverages (including a zazzed-up mocktail!), swingin’ tunes, the Trolley Tour of Evergleams on 8th to End All Trolley Tours (with Barb Bundy-Jost and Jordan Kabat; an additional buy-in experience), and a brief auction—we’re talking three items, Daddy-O!—of select swag! All amidst the sparkling wonderment of the Enchanted Evergleam Forest!
It’s going to be an evening that may ruin you for all other fundraisers for the rest of your life! All this Kitsch and Class can be yours for the entry fee of $50 per person ($25 additional for the Trolley Tour).
