On March 8, 2016, Brooklyn Public Library's Annual Gala raised more than $770,000 to support the Library's critical programs and services, including early childhood programming, teen internships, mobile library collections and books and other materials.

Over 400 guests celebrated under the domes at Weylin B. Seymour's in Williamsburg. The gala honored two Brooklyn success stories: the Mill Basin-raised CEO & Chairman of First Data Corporation, Frank J. Bisignano, and Etsy, the DUMBO-based marketplace for creative entrepreneurs. Following the dinner and program, guests danced the night away to the musical stylings of DJ Kiss, sponsored by BET Networks.
