In 2008, Denim & Diamonds was born as a last minute attempt to raise funds for the Library at Cedar Creek Lake. Its goal was to earn enough income, not to make improvements, but to simply keep the doors open. Each year, The Library at Cedar Creek Lake seeks operating funds from a variety of sources in order to meet its often overwhelming expense requirements. Denim & Diamonds has become the Library's primary fundraising event. Over 250 people attended the annual event at Cedar Creek Country Club.
