Meet Our Chairpeople

Team 17 - Making the Magic Happen
Michelle Kaye, Co-Chair, Team 17

Ticket holders will explore their new Library weeks before it opens to the public. They will see for themselves the Library’s transformation and the new possibilities it brings to our community. There will be surprises at every turn!

Rodney Veal, Co-Chair, Team 17

It’s going to blow your mind! This is NOT what people expect in their Library. The Main Event is going to rival galas in Chicago, Vegas and LA.
