The Circle of Friends for the NSU Alvin Sherman Library, Research and Information Technology Center recently hosted its Annual Gala and Fundraiser.

The evening began with over 60 attendees enjoying cocktails and appetizers, followed by a buffet dinner. Guests were treated to a performance of Dueling Pianos with Fun Pianos! By 176 Keys. A variety of hits were played; the oldies, the classics, and all the favorite requests, for two hours of toe-tapping, foot stomping, hard-rockin’ sing and dance along fun. Proceeds raised from the evening help fund resources for the Alvin Sherman Library.
