A Taste of Rim Country - 2018







A Taste of Rim 2018


The Payson Library is having a party and you are invited, so mark your calendar now!  The Library Friends of Payson will be hosting its annual library fundraiser, “A Taste of Rim Country,” on Saturday, March 3rd, 2018 from 5pm until 7:30p.  If you haven’t been to this event in the past, you have truly missed out on a wonderful evening.  Local area chefs are invited to demonstrate their creative culinary skills as they vie for the coveted “Best of the Best” award, with awards also given for the “Best Savory” and the “Best Dessert.”  Guests enjoy complimentary wine-tasting and other non-alcoholic beverages.  A “50-50” cash raffle is a fun part of the evening.  And a Silent Auction is also held with donations of fine art, jewelry, vintage items, books, and much, much more.

Both business and individual Sponsors are encouraged to support the Payson Library with monetary donations.  There are three levels:  “Gold” for a $500 donation, “Silver” for a $250 donation, and “Bronze” for a $100 donation.  All sponsors receive two complimentary tickets (a $70 value), and recognition through postings within the Library, as well as on Facebook and in the “Among Friends” newsletter.

Tickets are $35 per person ($20 is tax-deductible), and are available at the Payson Library.  Tickets must be purchased in advance of the event, as tickets are not sold at the door on the day of the event.  Payment can be either cash or check (no credit cards, please).

All proceeds benefit the general fund of the Library Friends of Payson which supports programs and supplies not included in the Payson Library’s regular budget.

Follow us on Facebook, or call the Payson Public Library at 928-474-9260.
