On Saturday October 23rd, 2021 The Gwinnett County Public Library Foundation will host its annual Puttin’ on the Litz Gala. Entitled “A Night To Fall Into Literacy,” we will provide an enchanting evening with delicious food, delightful company,  and memorable talent. The event will be held at Gas South District (formerly Infinite Energy Center) in Duluth, and feature UGA legend Vince Dooley as our keynote speaker.  All funds raised will go to allowing the library system to continue providing programs that support literacy in all of our communities, such as Beanstack, our Summer Reading Program, offering tutor.com to all individuals and the Career Online High School Program FREE OF CHARGE.

Enjoy a great evening of eating, dancing, and networking to help support an even GREATER CAUSE!  If you would rather avoid paying processing fees and get an invoice please send your request of what sponsorship/ticket you would like to Jason DiFranco at jdifranco@gwinnettpl.org.

Keynote Speaker

Vincent Joseph Dooley is the former head football coach (seasons 1964 through 1988) and athletic director (1979 to 2004) at the University of Georgia. During his 25-year coaching career at UGA, Dooley compiled a 201–77–10 record. His teams won six Southeastern Conference titles and the 1980 national championship. After the 1980 season, Dooley was recognized as college football’s “Coach of the Year” by several organizations, including the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association, whose annual award has since been renamed as the Paul “Bear” Bryant Award. Dooley’s teams were known for their hard nosed defense and conservative yet fundamentally sound offenses.
