A cooperative “Drive Into The Future” raffle to benefit the Library Construction Project.
Holyoke, MA -- On Friday June 22 at 10:00 a.m., the Holyoke Public Library (HPL) and Gary Rome Auto Group will officially announce that they have teamed up together to raffle a 2013 Hyundai to benefit HPL’s Next 100 Years Campaign to renovate and expand the library facility. This launch event will be held at the Library construction site at 335 Maple Street featuring Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse, Gary Rome and HPL officials. Members of the press and general public are welcome.
The “Drive into the Future” Raffle will provide the winner with a 3-year lease to a new 2013 Hyundai Elantra as a first prize. Raffle tickets may be purchased for $10 each, or 3 for $25, and the drawing will be held in December, 2012.
“We are extraordinarily grateful to Gary and the team at Gary Rome Auto Group for their generosity and support in this wonderful partnership,” said Library President Terry Plum. “Having such a terrific local business come forward at this time is extremely helpful, and we look forward not only to raising funds for the campaign, but also to spreading word throughout the area about how incredible the new library will be.”
The Library, which is now under construction, will be a blending of old and new, serving as a state-of-the-art information technology and community center facility while retaining the current building’s historic grandeur. The project will increase usable square footage in the library by 264% and provide ample space for children’s programs, technology and literacy training services.
“The Holyoke Public Library is critical to the future of Holyoke, and we want to play a strong role in bringing this important campaign across the finish line,” said Gary Rome, President of Gary Rome Auto Group. “This is about giving back to our community, and making the future brighter for all of our children and families.”
Of note, the Rome family has been doing business in Holyoke for over 90 years and has actively supported numerous local charities that help children and families in the community.
