The Building a Dream gala will make its Arlington debut on March 25 and will feature bestselling Texas author Sandra Brown. Hosted by the Friends & Foundation of the Arlington Public Library, the newest event on the local social scene will welcome guests at the Arlington Museum of Art for a special evening of fun and festivities.

Guests at this inaugural event will mix and mingle while enjoying heavy hors d’oeuvres and cocktails as they peruse a silent auction. Brown will visit with guests and do a presentation about the importance of libraries and books in a community. The event committee is led by Cindy Goodyear with help from members Bill Lace, Nancy Hadaway, Claudia Gray, Jo McGovern and FFAPL president Dorothy Rencurrel.

“This year will mark the first of what will become an annual Building a Dream gala to support the George W. Hawkes downtown library and will benefit the FFAPL’s DREAM: Central – Building the Library of Tomorrow campaign,” said library development director Andi Davis.

“Funding raised through this campaign will provide the furniture, fixtures, equipment and technology for a new, state-of-the-art downtown library, where the people of Arlington will go to achieve their dreams.”

Brown, recipient of the Texas Medal of Arts Award for Literature, has authored more than 80 novels with most of them landing on the “New York Times” bestseller lists and has earned prestigious awards from the International Thriller Writer’s Association and Romance Writers of America.
