Erie County Legislator John J. Mills is pleased to announce that the 7th annual Concord Library Hot Dog Roast Fundraiser, held July 18, raised $1,516 to support the library’s efforts to provide quality programming to the greater Concord and Springville community. The donation was presented to former Library Director Annette Gernatt on Aug. 30 during a presentation at the library. Also attending the presentation was Concord Supervisor Gary Eppolito.
“After seven years, this is the final donation that will be accepted from Annette before she begins her well-deserved retirement. I want to thank her for all her hard work to make the Hot Dog Roast Fundraiser so successful. It has been a pleasure hosting these events with her, knowing that under her leadership the funds were going to good use to better the library for all patrons. I am looking forward to continuing this tradition in the years to come and I am sure Annette will be there offering a helping hand, as she always does,” said Legislator Mills. “This year’s fundraiser was the highest total recorded by the Concord Library, surpassing last year’s amount by nearly 7 percent. I want to thank everyone who came out to support the fundraiser.”
Legislator Mills’ Hot Dog Roast Fundraisers have raised nearly $40,000 for the libraries in his district. He purchases the supplies and donates 100 percent of the proceeds.
