Sparkle & Shine

Kevin Anderson shows off “The Cow Puncher” print by Frederic Remington during the live auction benefitting the Meridian Public Library last Saturday evening with Darbie and Bo Bowman considering the item.

Not only was it an elegant affair, but it also was an extremely successful event. Meridian Public Library’s annual Jewels & Jeans fundraiser sparkled and shined, and had everyone smiling and feeling good; from the 125 guests to the organizers to the many helpers. The tickets, silent and live auction, stretch raffle, diamond earring treasure hunt and playing-card game brought in an astonishing $18,000 before expenses. Table-top mirrors reflected light from candles poised atop fragile glass bottles, bathing the Meridian Civic Center in candle light last Saturday transforming the otherwise functional space into a magical venue.
