The Hulbert Library of the Town of Concord was presented a check in the amount of $1,305 by Erie County Legislator John Mills. The check represents funds raised through Mills’ annual Hot Dog Roast.
In its 10th year, the Hot Dog Roast has raised $11,710 for the Concord library. Mills presented the donation to Bridgette Heintz, library director, on Aug. 8. Also present for the presentation were town of Concord Supervisor Gary Eppolito, Concord Town Board Member Clyde Drake, Library Board Treasurer Dr. Carl Eisenhard and Library Board Trustee Kelli Rumfola.
“Thanks to the support of the greater Concord, Springville community, my Hot Dog Roast Fundraiser has now raised $11,710 in 10 years to support the library’s efforts to provide quality programming and materials,” said Mills, in a press release. “I want to thank all the local officials and the library staff for helping to ensure the event was a success.”
Heintz said the money has not yet been earmarked for use, but will be added to the library’s account for programming or material use.
“On behalf of myself and the Hulbert Library Board of Trustees, thank you to Mr. Mills and his office for continuing to support the libraries,” Heintz said, in a press release. “A sincere thank you as well to the town of Concord, village of Springville, the Hulbert Library staff, all the volunteers who assisted with the fundraiser and all who showed up to make the event another success.”
Over the years, the Hot Dog Roast Fundraisers have raised more than $65,700 for the libraries in Mills’ district. For information on the Hot Dog Roast Fundraisers, or to speak with Mills, contact his Legislative Office at 858-8850 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
