Posted 7 Jul 2017: 18th Annual Summer Fling is Coming

The 18th Annual Summer Fling: Ice Cream Social and Silent Auction Fundraiser to benefit Vista Grande Public Library will be held on Sunday, August 13, 2017, 1 to 4 pm at the ECIA Community Center

This year’s event will be packed with delicious food, live entertainment and family fun! Café Fina will be making gluten-free fruit crisps with ice cream ȧ la mode for the event, or savor a root beer float, fresh watermelon and of course ice cream with tempting toppings. Plus, this year’s Silent Auction will have a wide array of great items: beautiful baskets, gift certificates for services and dining, books, local jewelry, artwork, food and wine. Enjoy live country western music with Sally Long and Fast Patsy including dance space and 2-step dance lessons during the band’s breaks; bid on fabulous auction items; kids can build Lego creations, make crafts; play chess; Touch a Fire Truck; and everyone can enjoy the good company of neighbors and friends all while supporting the local non-profit library.

Eldorado 285 Recycles is once again making this a zero waste project and offering helpful tips to attendees. Eldorado Cactus Recovery Project and Eldorado Flora and Fauna volunteers will be on hand to educate as well.

Admission wrist bands include unlimited ice cream and the chance to bid on items in the silent auction, plus family entertainment and activities. The price for adult admission is $8, and for children ages 6 to 11, it is $5. Or purchase a family ticket, which includes 2 adults and your children (under 18), for only $20. Children 5 and under are free. Entertainment/Auction Only tickets will also be available for $5, if preferred. Wristbands are on sale at the library, on the library website (, click the Donate Now! button) and will be sold at the event.

Cash, local checks with identification, Visa/MasterCard, Discover and American Express accepted.

VGPL is an independent, non-profit organization. This means that while the library receives partial funding from Santa Fe County and grants, over 50% of the budget comes from direct community support. Fundraisers like this one, as well as direct appeals, pay for programming, new books and materials, staffing, and other operations that make southeastern Santa Fe’s community library what it is. Summer Fling is a major fundraiser supporting access to library resources for everyone in our area.
