Foundation for Lincoln City Libraries Hosts Wine & Wii Fundraiser

Residents of Lincoln, Nebraska were invited to “Unleash your inner rock star or realize your dream of winning the Masters Cup at the Foundation for Lincoln City Libraries’ Wine & Wii Game Night and Silent Auction” this spring. And they did. The Lincoln Country Club was the site of the gathering featuring a silent auction and computer gaming. People of all ages and walks of life played the most talked about games, competing against friends and neighbors at Wii gaming booths. Gaming equipment was donated by local sponsors and turned over to the library for youth programming activities after the event. Sponsors include Kingery Construction, Whitehead Oil Company, LaMar’s, Clark Enersen Partners, Carpets Direct, and Allergy Asthma & Immunology Associates, PC. The silent auction included items such as a lunch with Ted Kooser (U.S. Poet Laureate, 2004-2006), tickets to the Lied Center, tickets to a Cornhusker Football game and a Lincoln Stars game, autographed books, local art, vacation at an Inn in Jamaica, a Wii machine, hand-made wood furniture, and many gift certificates and unique items in all price ranges. The Foundation for Lincoln City Libraries was founded in 1954 to provide private financial support for Lincoln’s public libraries.
