Kent Memorial Library will hold its annual gala and fundraiser, “Sunset on Spooner,” June 25 from 5 to 8 p.m.

Their property is set amid the picturesque South Kent hills with dramatic views of where the Appalachian Trail zigzags its way along the Housatonic River.

The event will include music by the Regulators, an open bar and auction items.

The fare will include gazpacho shots, grilled shrimp, lentil salad, a variety of appetizers, wines, prosecco, spirits, beers and cold drinks.

The auction will include dining with celebrities, Bulls Bridge golf for four, Broadway tickets, a vacation week in Mexico, Giants tickets, restaurant gift certificates, artwork, a guitar and more.
