GOLD BEACH — Curry Public Library in Gold Beach will hold its ninth annual Just Desserts Auction starting at 6 p.m. Friday, June 8, at the library located at 94341 Third St. in Gold Beach. The free event, open to the public, features a complimentary appetizer buffet, and includes complimentary wine, and Arch Rock Beer from 6-7 p.m. The Dessert Auction, which is the culmination of the library’s Month-Long Silent Auction, starts promptly at 7 p.m. as the Silent Auction ends.
Entertaining, Tim Brueckner, pastor of Bethany Lutheran Church and part-time jet boat captain, will once again act as auctioneer. The evening promises to be funny, fast, and one of the most enjoyable fundraising events you will ever attend. A trivia contest that takes place between desserts being auctioned, keeps the evening energy high.
Thirteen desserts are on the auction block, including Italian Almond Torte w/Raspberry sauce, Kouign Amann (“Queen of Cakes”), Cranberry Marionberry Galette, Chocolate Vanilla Swirl Cheesecake, Hummingbird Cake, Chocolate Velvet Mousse Cake with Raspberries and Chocolate Mirror Glaze, Chunky Chewy Carrot Cake, Pebbly Beach Fruit Pockets, Cherry Pie with sugared lattice crust, Irish Whiskey Apple Cake, Tiramisu, and a Chocolate Berry Tart on Shortbread Crust.
All proceeds from the Dessert Auction benefit the Harald Haug Library Learning Center addition which will open its doors to the public on August 18, 2018.
