2nd Authors for Altruism Charity Book Sale & Silent Auction!

Meet and mingle with local authors, support two worthwhile charities and get a head start on your Christmas shopping!

Announcing the second annual Authors for Altruism Charity Book Sale & Silent Auction! Save the date of Saturday, November 08th, 2014 (noon – 4:00 p.m.) and note our new venue – Expressionz Café (located at 9938 – 70th Ave., Edmonton).
A percentage of book sales along with all proceeds from our accompanying Silent Auction, will be donated directly to The Rainbow Society of Alberta along with The Alberta Caregivers Association. Despite a few speed bumps encountered last year, we were very pleased to raise approximately $700.00 – a pretty good day’s work!

Cassie Stocks

  1. I’m not sure I can make the actual event in person, but I would be very happy to donate some books to such a fantastic cause. If you’re still accepting donations please let me know.

    Hi Rhonda,

    Thank you for your kind offer. For the 2014 Authors for Altruism event, we are no longer accepting donations of books.
