The University of Wisconsin Eau Claire's English Festival is raising money to support the Friends Of The L. E. Phillips Memorial Public Library Inc. The Friends Of The L. E. Phillips Memorial Public Library Inc. supports the library through volunteer activities and fundraising efforts to bring community interest and promote reading among all members of Chippewa Valley. In similar ways English Festival organizes events promoting English studies to students, faculty, and staff at UW-Eau Claire and to community members in the Chippewa Valley. We have chosen to donate the money raised through Eau Claire Half Marathon runner Kevin Bergsbaken to support the Friends Of The L. E. Phillips Memorial Public Library Inc.'s efforts to spread their love and interests for literature throughout the Eau Claire community and Chippewa Valley. With the support of your donation you will be helping to support increased public awareness of the L. E. Phillips Memorial Public Library's services but at the same time promoting all members of the community to discover their own interests through literature.
Note: Eau Claire Events Inc. has agreed to cut all checks to the Friends of The L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library Inc. to ensure they receive each dollar we raise through this fundraiser. Also the Eau Claire Marathon takes place on Sunday May 1st so all donations will be due by this time when I will make my way around the city, the UWEC's Blugold Mile, and ending my journey at Carson Park.
