Fallbrook Blanket Project donates to FOFL fundraiser

FALLBROOK – Helen McHargue and Nancy Havier, board members of the Friends of the Fallbrook Library, received a blanket donation by the Fallbrook Blanket Project. As one of 40 items in a silent auction, the Fallbrook Library will host its first annual fundraiser, Advancing Children's Literacy, Sunday, Nov. 12, from 1-5 p.m.

The fundraiser will help support FOFL programs, as well as purchasing books, DVDs and e-books. In 2024, the FOFL said it plans to provide books in the Bottom Shelf Bookstore for free to local children.

The fundraiser will feature three best selling authors: Susan Straight, T. Jefferson Parker and Thomas Petty. Also, attendees can enjoy hors d'oeuvres, a hosted bar and a silent auction with varied items of interest including Lalique figures, golf rounds and a vacation in Cabo San Lucas. Tickets are $50 each online at http://fallbrooklibraryfriends.org or at the Bottom Shelf Bookstore at 124 S. Mission Road.

The Fallbrook Blanket Project said it was pleased to contribute to many of the Fallbrook fundraisers which benefit the community. Its main mission, however, is to knit and crochet blankets and other items to donate to those in need in Fallbrook and other North County charities. Anyone is welcome to attend Mondays at Living Waters Church  and/or Fridays at the Fallbrook Library, both days from 10 a.m. to noon. For more information, visit http://fallbrookblanketproject.org.
