Rockford, IL (February 8, 2024) Rockford University is thrilled to announce Gala 2024 Cocktails & Compositions is set to take place on Saturday, February 10, 2024, at 6:00 p.m. This interactive social event aims to raise funds for the campus library while providing guests with a memorable evening filled with literary-inspired delights.

Attendees can expect to embark on a journey through the world of literature as they indulge in literary-themed food stations spread across two floors. From vocal performances to poetry readings and human library presentations, there will be no shortage of engaging entertainment throughout the evening.

One of the highlights of the event is the signature cocktail, “The Page Turner,” a delicious bourbon lemonade. Guests purchasing this cocktail will receive a commemorative cup to remember the occasion. As they traverse the library, guests will have the opportunity to explore a diverse range of experiences and flavors.

In addition to the culinary delights and entertainment, the Gala will feature a 50/50 raffle and a Silent Auction boasting an array of beautiful baskets up for grabs.

Attendees are encouraged to embrace the theme by dressing as their favorite literary character or opting for cocktail attire.

We are excited to host an event that celebrates the magic of literature while supporting our campus library. The Gala promises to be an enchanting evening that guests won’t soon forget.

The media is invited to attend the Gala this Saturday at the Howard Colman Library at 6 p.m. and cover the event. The library is located on RU’s campus at 5050 E. State St. in Rockford.
