Rare Wine, Rare Books Dinner

By Denise Kettering

This campaign ended on July 28, 2017, but you can still make a gift to Missouri State University by clicking here!

IMPORTANT UPDATE:  The event is now SOLD OUT but you can still show your support for the Fraley Family Rare Books Endowment by making a gift through the campaign.  Consider a gift of any amount to help us reach our goal!  Thank you everyone for your support!  

The exclusive "Rare Wine, Rare Books" annual event will be held on Friday, July 28, 2017, in the Duane G. Meyer Library. Buy your tickets now for this unique dining and educational experience! Space is limited!

The evening includes a dinner with six flights of wine. Guests will have an opportunity to view some of Special Collections' most interesting books while sampling wines selected to enhance this year's theme: "The Art of Wine, the Art of the Book."

This unique and exclusive event is a fundraiser for the Fraley Family Rare Books Endowment.  Please plan to join us as we enjoy food and wine with a book-loving crowd!

Tickets are $100 per person. The event begins at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, July 28. Additional details will be sent to guests before that date.

If you cannot join us that evening, please consider making a donation to the endowment. It is through your support we are able to purchase books that support the MSU Libraries' goal to document the history of the book, as well as care for the volumes already in Special Collections.

Please contact Anne Baker, Interim Head of Special Collections, with any questions: AnneBaker@missouristate.edu or 417-836-5428.

Tickets to the event are sold out but you may still make a gift of any amount to the endowment. In addition, MSU alumni that make a qualifying gift of $25 or more receive an Active Alumni Member card.
