Representatives from the Avedis Foundation presented the Friends of the Tecumseh Library with a $6,000 donation to add to funds raised from the Friends’ upcoming Mystery Dinner Theatre fundraiser.

The event will take place Monday, Sept. 14. It’s become an annual favorite in the community, with tickets sold to 160 guests for an evening of dinner, entertainment, laughs and surprises.

The Avedis Foundation is a private foundation with 501(c ) 3 status established in 2012. Its vision is “to measurably improve the health, wellness and quality of life for the people of Pottawatomie County and its surrounding communities.”

The Friends’ efforts help to support library programs throughout the year in financial contributions, volunteer time and advocacy for the library.
