The Magnolia Library and Community Center offers residents and visitors samplings of all sorts of information on a regular basis.
Friday night, it will offer a taste of Magnolia itself.
The 18th annual Taste of Magnolia, an annual fund-raiser for the library and community facility, is set for Friday from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at the library, located at the corner of Lexington and Norman avenues in Gloucester’s southwesternmost village.
The event, said Jamie O’Hara, one of the organizers, offers the chance to enjoy the evening sampling food from a number of area restaurants, while also tasting fine wine and beer.
The event will also include a silent auction, a prize raffle and a 50/50 cash raffle for up to $2,500.
Tickets are priced at $30 — including all food and drink — and will be available at the door.
Also, residents or visitors may also purchase tickets for both the event and the 50/50 raffle in advance by calling (978) 290-3734, or by emailing MLC.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attendees must be at least 21 years of age; all proceeds benefit the library and community center.
