Opus & Olives

Opus & Olives: Fine Print & Fine FoodThank you for your support!

Opus & Olives is a celebration that benefits the communities you love through the work of The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library and local literacy programs of the Pioneer Press. When you join us at Opus & Olives, you support early literacy, workforce development, and other lifelong learning opportunities for individuals of every age, ethnicity, and socioeconomic background. This lively and elegant evening is not your average gala. More than just fabulous food, drink, and conversation, Opus & Olives is a celebration of the transformative power of the written word.

The event on October 8 was a success thanks to you. We hope to see you again next year! Please follow us on Facebook to see pictures from the event and other great announcements.

Opus & Olives offers an opportunity to support the community and at the same time engage with Twin Cities business and community leaders and entertain clients, customers or friends. The Friends is grateful to our many sponsors for their generous support, especially 14-years’ lead sponsor RBC Wealth Management, who invite you to join them in supporting Opus & Olives!
