Merritt Fund to cosponsor Annual Conference reception with NMRT

LeRoy C. Merritt Humanitarian Fund, Midwinter Meeting/Annual Conference

Every year at the ALA Annual Conference, the LeRoy C. Merritt Humanitarian Fund sponsors a “Reception for a Cause” to raise funds and promote the vital work of the Merritt Fund.

This year, with the conference moving to New Orleans, the Merritt Fund trustees wanted to have a real party!  So we will be joining forces with ALA’s New Members Round Table (NMRT) for a can’t-miss event!

Date:                      Sunday, June 26, 2011

Time:                      7:30 to 10:00 p.m.

Location:               L’Entrepot Gallery, 527 Julia, New Orleans, LA

All are welcome to attend!  There is no charge, although the Merritt Fund is very happy to accept donations.  Refreshments will be provided (although there will be a charge for drinks).

Visit for more information.  You can RSVP on Facebook.
