      STRATFORD LIBRARY PLANS MAJOR BENEFIT

      Twelfth Annual Fundraiser, “Midnight Train to Stratford”, Set for April 25th

      The Stratford Library Board of Trustees will present its annual major fund-raiser for the library on Saturday, April 25 beginning at 6:30 pm. The twelfth annual event, entitled “Midnight Train To Stratford”, will feature New York City’s Crossing Midnight band and have a Motown party theme. It is a gala evening of hot music, dancing, appetizers, dinner, fine beverages and delectable desserts. A silent auction will also be included in the festivities. This year’s event will be held at the Oronoque Country Club in Stratford and all proceeds will benefit the library’s collections.

           Crossing Midnight performed together for several years before founder/singer Rudy Valme decided to take them to the next level. The group has performed in countless stages, bars and private homes in the United States and recently won 1st place at a battle of the bands for Resort World Casino. They have also performed at numerous important events at various venues from corporations to weddings, gracing the stage for veterans, the Mayor of Bristol and the Special Assistant to the Secretary of Defense. Playing Top 40, Motown, Disco, Jazz, Rock and more, Crossing Midnight has become one of the most highly sought bands out of New York City.

           Major sponsors for the library benefit include People's United Bank, Stratford Land Development, Aquarion Water Company, Berchem, Moses and Devlin, Milford Bank, Joel Pleban, CPA, Curran Volkswagen, Hubbell Electric Water Heater Company and Pistey Funeral Home. Benefit sponsors receive a variety of special perks and are still currently being sought.
