A Day at the Races! BPLG Scholarship Fundraiser – June 10th

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

It’s that time again!  Time for the  BPLG traditional Day at the Races scholarship fundraiser.  Join us at Golden Gate Fields on June 10th for friends,  food and horses (at least that’s the order I have).  The last day to place your order is May 31st , so order your tickets early to make sure you don’t miss out .  Then put on your traditional race day hat (no baseball hats though) and meet and greet with your BPLG friends and their families.  Bring your appetite because the food is plentiful and if you enjoy watching the horses, cheer on your favorite jockey or cheer the fact that our scholarship fund is growing with your help!

Spectrum Fundraiser!

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

If you missed the opportunity to attend the Golden Gate Fields Fundraiser, you have another chance to meet and greet your fellow BPLG members and supporters and raise money for a great cause.  Thanks to Martha Arroyo-Nieves, Ana-Elba Pavon and Ida Z. daRoza for hosting the ALA Spectrum Scholarship fundraiser.

The Spectrum Scholarship has helped many BPLG members not only pay for library school but it’s also provided a unique opportunity to be part of the leadership program and to take an active role in the committment to diversity in the field of librarianship.  You can’t go wrong with good food, good friends and a good cause.  Let’s come out and show your support!
