The Basehor Community Library plans its first Gala Thursday, May 11, at the Legends Theater in Village West.
The event will start at 6:30 p.m. with a silent auction, then Lynn Sebree will take over with a live auction at 7 p.m.
More than 90 donated items will be for sale, including an air hockey table from Amini's Galleria, a season pass from Kansas Speedway, a private wine tasting for 20 people from Holy-Field Winery, all-you-can-eat buffalo wings for up to 10 people from Hooters, a private party from Scrapbook Dreams, four passes to Falcon Lakes and much more. Montana Grill, PartyLite Candles, Arbonne International, Sherwin-Williams and Powell Gardens are some of the other businesses that donated items to the auctions.
Gala attendees will also have the opportunity to see a new movie, "Akeelah and the Bee," and enjoy a cash bar.
All proceeds from this event will go to help the new library in Basehor.
