Diamond Bar Friends of the Library 29th Annual Wine Soirée

Co-Chairs Kathleen Newe and Tony Torng, along with Friends’ President Julia Gomez and the entire Friends of the Diamond Bar Library board, thank everyone who helped make the 29th annual Wine Soirée such a resounding success. Every year we say, “This will be the best Soirée ever” and every year it becomes true. This year we can say, “This is the best Soirée in the Library ever.” Of course, we have never had the Soirée in the Diamond Bar Library, so it was true on so many levels! We were in uncharted territory: coming away from COVID and planning the Soirée in a much smaller venue. It all worked so well because of library lovers like you. Thank you to all who worked so hard to make the magic happen.

Thank you to Valley Vista Services for donating the wine glasses.

Thank you to Waste Management for donating aprons.

Our very talented food and beverage hosts fed us with generosity and style. Our guests were so appreciative of the spectacular assortment of food supplied by:

Basil & Co.
Domestic BBQ
Encore Teppan
Fusion 2 any 1
Happy Harbor Restaurant
Ni Ni Bakery
Round Table Pizza

Tony’s Barbecue
Sprouts Farmers Market
Stella Artois

Please remember to visit these very generous restaurants and thank them for their community spirit. You will enjoy every one of them!

Thank you to all our sponsors for their generosity and making our 2023 Soirée program so beautiful.

Thank you to all our generous donors. Our live, silent, and book auctions along with our great raffle shone because of your generosity. A special thanks goes to our talented live auctioneers Nancy Lyons and Larry Smith.

Thank you to Linda Headlee and the Miss Diamond Bar Court for working with us.

There are so many people to thank, so please know that the Friends are grateful to each and every one who purchased tickets, bid on prizes, and donated in one way or another. We couldn’t have done it without you.
