The Coors Distributing Co. hospitality room was rocking for the cause Dec. 3, 2008 — the Christmas party/John Peter Smith Hospital book benefit orchestrated by IABC and SPJ for all of the journalism groups in Tarrant County. Think how happy everyone would’ve been if they’d known how much good they were doing. Or maybe they did.

Here’s the take: 297 books and 310 magazines collected at the door plus another 238 books donated by Friends of the Library. JPS assessed the books at $7.50 each and the magazines at 50 cents each. Throw in $363 net cash, and the readers library at the county hospital received $4,530 worth of value.
