Erie County Legislator John J. Mills is pleased to announce that his annual Hot Dog Roast Fundraiser has once again raised much-needed funding for the Collins Library. He presented the donation to Library Director Abigail Barten-McGowan during a presentation held July 11.

 

“I am so proud of the partnerships I have formed with the libraries in my district over the years. Together, we created a fundraising event that the community gets behind 100 percent. Thank you to everyone who supported Collins Library event and helped to break the previous fundraising record. I am sure this funding will go a long way in supporting this great branch,” said Legislator Mills. 

 

The Collins Library hosted its fundraiser on June 17 and raised $1,415, a new record! In 11 years, this event has raised $11,760 for the branch.

 

“The hot dog roast is a staple of our summer festivities, bringing out so many members of the community in support of the library. In times of constant threat of financial cuts, we see our communities supporting libraries as a gathering place and an educational institution,” said Abigail Barten-McGowan, Collins Library Director, who added that the money raised will be used for programming for all ages.

 

The Hot Dog Roast Fundraisers have raised nearly $70,000 for the libraries in Legislator Mills’ district.
