An Evening in the Stacks: The Pink Edition

An Evening in the Stacks: The Pink Edition

No rose-colored glasses needed for more than 700 guests at the Harford County Public Library’s annual fundraiser.

Everything was rosy – and then some – at this gala that glowed.

The party – literally – was held in the stacks of the Abingdon Library, where folks mixed, mingled and indulged in the offerings from a number of food stations scattered about.

Guests were treated to the spacious center bar area, where a French Martini was the evening’s signature cocktail.

At the Bourbon & Bubbles Bar, guests received a blossomy boost with a variety of fresh flowers frozen in the round ice cubes.
