Cokato Friends Preparing for Local Fundraiser
Friends of the Cokato Area Library (FOCAL) are busy preparing and creating silent action baskets for their upcoming Rainy Day Tea Party and Silent Auction.
On Saturday, April 14 at 1:00 p.m. the FOCAL group will host a Rainy Day Tea Party to benefit the Cokato Public Library. Activities for the day include a lunch, silent auction, rainy day program and rainy day photo contest. Amateur photographers are encouraged to submit photographs depicting a rainy day – guests will vote on their favorite and prizes will be awarded.
Every year the menu reflects the theme and this year, with the help of Elbows Allowed Distinctive Catering and the friends of the library, the menu includes: End of the Rainbow Lentil Salad, Blue Sky Deviled Eggs, Tornado Wraps, Hurricane Carrot Curls, Blustery Day Celery Fronds, Hailstone Scones, Rumbling Cumulous Cloud Cream, Cloudberry Preserves, Mud Pies and Rainy Day Cupcakes along with PG Tips Black Tea, Coffee, Cocoa and lemonade.
Silent auction baskets filled with a bounty of donated items from local supporters and businesses, including passes to Mall of America’s Nickelodeon theme park, are sure to bring out the competitive and generous side of the Cokato Library supporters.
This is the sixth tea party fundraiser for the friends group.
