You should have been there, old sport!
On Saturday, Sept. 28, the Friends of the Arlington Public Library hosted over 400 people at the Arlington Artisphere, for the Library’s first Eight-Thirteen Ball.
Guests dressed-to-impress in Great Gatsby inspired atire, and danced the night away with the Hot Society Orchestra and Fidgety Feet dance troupe.
The Ball and accompanying silent auction raised money for the Friends in support of the Library’s early literacy program 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to everyone who attended, volunteered, and otherwise helped to make this such an excellent night!
Photographer Chris Rudy was on hand to take lots of excellent photos:
