Erie County Legislator John J. Mills is pleased to announce that the 2nd annual Boston Free Library Hot Dog Roast Fundraiser raised $1,016 to support the library’s ongoing efforts to provide quality programming and to continue building maintenance projects.

 

“The library saw a significant increase from its first fundraiser thanks to the support of the community. In 2012, the event raised $760 and this year the total was over $1,000,” said Legislator Mills. “Last year I extended a challenge to the Boston Library director and board to break its record and they did better than expected. These funds will significantly benefit the library and I am pleased to present this donation.”

 

“I would like to thank the communities we serve for their tremendous support,” said Laura McLeod, Director for the Boston Free Library, during the check presentation held July 8 at the library.  

 

Legislator Mills’ Hot Dog Roast Fundraisers have raised nearly $40,000 for the libraries in his district.
