Benefit Event For Books and Company Set For September 6th


Whitneyville—August 29, 2008. An event to celebrate the re-opening of our local bookstore, Books & Company will take place on September 6th from between 10:00 am and 3:00pm on the Whitneyville United Church green, located on the corner of Whitney and Putnam Avenues. The Books and Company store was devastated by a hit and run driver who crashed through the entirety of the building coming to rest in rear bathroom, which in turn burst pipes and caused additional serious damage.

Come and enjoy an afternoon on the green which will feature food, coffee, lots of live music and puppetry as well, all provided by local merchants and residents. While enjoying the festivities book lovers will get a chance to see the newly refurbished store.

As a result of the damages to the store and in an effort to offset some of these costs and to help replenish their supply used books we ask that those who come bring good quality, fairly new and interesting books to donate to Books & Company to help restock the shelves. In addition, there will be a raffle that will feature gift certificates from other local merchants. Tickets can be purchased during the event and the raffle will take place at 2:00. And as always, cash donations of any kind will be greatly appreciated.

This event created by several members of the Whitneyville Civic Association and local merchant Whitneyville Foods as a response to this tragedy and in an effort to show our support to Books & Company. 100% of all proceeds will go to Books & Company.
