The Jefferson County Library Foundation will hold its 13th Annual Rare & Novel Night at Bandimere Speedway at 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 22. The "Rock, Race & Read" event will once again give guests the chance to burn up the quarter mile in a Z28 Camaro on Thunder Mountain.
Tickets are $65 to attend and $250 to attend and race; all tickets include hors d'oeuvres, dinner, live entertainment by Jefferson County Public Library’s Stacy McKenzie, and silent and live auctions. You'll get the chance to bid on a condo in Steamboat Springs for a week; a privately catered BBQ, featuring a variety of Craft Beers; a Wine Cellar; signed and framed pictures of Stephen King and Peyton Manning; a condo in Maui for a week; and much more, including rare and vintage books.
To reserve tickets, contact Natalie Martinez at 303-403-5075.
Proceeds from the event help support children and teen literacy programs at the Library, such as Summer Reading Club and the Traveling Children's Library.
