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!
