The Friends of SaddleBrooke Libraries 2022 Bucks 4 Books Raffle raised money to buy new books, DVDs, and audiobooks for the SaddleBrooke Community Libraries. The raffle is a win–win, because half of the money goes to the libraries and the other half is distributed in cash prizes to lucky ticket holders.

On Nov. 30 guests at the 2022 Bucks 4 Books Celebration enjoyed a fun-filled dinner and musical event. Entertainment was provided by the CS&M Trio, one of the most popular and talented bands in Tucson. The group’s blend of acoustic music and three-part vocal harmony, a whimsical stage presence, and songs from the Eagles to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young made guests ready to rock out on the dance floor. Groovy, man!

In addition to food, drinks, and live music, the event included 1960s trivia, dance, and costume contests. The competition was fierce but good fun for everyone. At the end of the evening, the drawing for this year’s three lucky Bucks 4 Books Grand Prize cash winners was held. The winners were as follows:

First place: Carla Kemble ($1,600)

Second place: Judy Cox ($960)

Third place: Carol Titone ($640)
