The Carmel Clay Public Library Foundation Guild was formed in 2004 by Donna Adams, Marianne Brocke, Mimi Brookie, Julianne Hunter, Karee Petruzzi, Jan Stanich, Karen Vanneman and foundation director Ruth Nisenshal to assist with developing and hosting a signature fundraising event for the benefit of the Library.
In 2005, the Guild hosted its first fundraising event … "Crème de la Crème" - an art exhibit and silent auction for the benefit of the Library.
In 2005, the Guild hosted its first annual signature event "The Guilded Leaf" Book and Author Luncheon that has since been held on the fourth Thursday in October. This year's event date is October 28th @ at the Ritz Charles in Carmel, Indiana.
