Slated for March 25, the Block Party will entertain attendees from 1–4pm at the Library, 38443 North Chad Bramlet Schoolhouse Road. The fundraiser will offer interactive activities such as live music, classic cars, auction items, a book signing from a local celebrity author and more.

Tickets include many of the activities, all food and beverages, including wine and beer, for $125 per person. Must be 21 or older to attend. Interested sponsors may contact the Library directly for information on levels of sponsorship. Local celebrity authors Carly Kade, Paulette Bodeman and Clarissa Burt will sign and have copies of their books available. Kade is the award-winning equestrian author of In the Reins and Cowboy Away. Bodeman authored The Breakaway Girl and is also a teacher, coach and creator of The Mindful Meditation. Burt, the co-author of Italian Gluten-Free Gastronomy, is an award-winning actress, international media celebrity, model and speaker. In the auction, guests will have an opportunity to bid on a beautiful quilt inspired by The Very Hungry Caterpillar along with the matching book signed by author Eric Carle. The soulful country stylings of Chad Bramlet will provide the event’s musical background. The singer-songwriter and Country Showdown finalist has toured and shared the stage with Lonestar, Trick Pony, Thomas Rhett, Chris Young and others. As Bramlet’s smooth, rich voice fills the air, the photo booth awaits the zany picture poses of patrons while spellbinding magicians and fortune tellers mesmerize guests with tricks and readings.
32 Library organizing committee
Food truck favorites Wandering Donkey and Grilled Addiction, along with their latest concept Noodles a GoGo, will keep partygoers full, with temptations such as burritos, bowls, tacos, savory sandwiches, burgers and sumptuous salads. Plus, the new Noodles a GoGo truck brings noodle and pasta dishes inspired by far-off countries and American classics. Car enthusiasts can imagine driving one of the Scottsdale Classic Car Company vehicles on display. Guided by Sonoran Art League artists, art devotees can purchase a tile to paint onsite for the community art mural. Their tile will join others as part of a large art project displayed throughout 2018 at the Desert Foothills Library.
