Celebrity bartender event raises funds for Reading Public Library

Reading Public Library held its eighth annual Celebrity Bartender fundraiser on Thursday at Saucony Creek Franklin Station Brew Pub in Reading.

Arleny Pimentel, Ebony McNeil, Giuseppe Borelli, Gary Henne and Jed Richardson shook, stirred, poured and entertained all evening, organizers said.

All drink tips and online donations support the creation of a “maker space” at the main library. It will be located in the Teen Loft.

The event goal of $10,000 was reached, the library said.

Donate online at readingpubliclibrary.org.

The library said that in the past six weeks, the bartenders have reached out to family, friends and colleagues, created motivational videos and became state-certified bartenders, all in support of the library.
