On Thursday, April 19 from 7 – 9 p.m., Silver Lake Country Club will be filled with gourmet desserts from area restaurants and bakeries. The public is invited to sample these delicacies, snack on hearty appetizers, bid on lavish silent auction items from local donors, visit the cash bar, and enjoy the gala atmosphere at the club. Tickets are $25 and are available at the front desk of the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library.


2012 marks the sixth annual Dessert Extravaganza Fundraiser. Last year this celebration raised over $14,500 for significant improvements to the library. Given recent state funding reductions for public library systems throughout Ohio, the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library is focused on addressing its financial needs with innovative programs like this one. The Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library Foundation was able to purchase furniture for our new conference room and (in partnership with the Friends of the Library) bought our electronic outdoor sign with money raised by last year’s Dessert Extravaganza.


Desserts and hearty hors d’oeuvres offered at the 2012 Dessert Extravaganza come from Bistro on Main, DeVitis Italian Market, Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream, Acme Fresh Market, Cupcake Binge, Giant Eagle, One Red Door, Bittersweet’s Custom Cake Creations, Edible Arrangements, Pallotta’s Pastries, Rosewood Grill, Main Street Cupcakes, Pancho & Lefty’s, Kirbie’s Family Meats & Catering, Nosh Eatery, Linda’s Kitchen, Susie Biscotti, and Sweet Tooth. Four Corner Promotions is this year’s signature sponsor. Abshire & Haylan have kindly donated a diamond necklace to be raffled off at the event.
