The best ideas don’t just happen – it takes some dogged determination and supporters to make them work! Authors for Altruism is one such example. For the past couple of years, Rick Lauber and I have spearheaded this unique community fundraiser. Based on our previous success and growth, we are very pleased to announce the details for Authors for Altruism – Our Third Annual Charity Book Sale and Community Fundraiser and are very thrilled to have silent auction items donated by a senior literary agent, a local publisher and editor, as well as an indoor rock wall climbing centre. If you are a writer or author who has been trying to get your work in front of an agent or publisher, here is your chance!
Attend the Third Annual Authors for Altruism Charity Book Sale and Community Fundraiser on Saturday, August 15th, 2015 at Audreys Books (10702 – Jasper Ave., Edmonton, AB) from noon – 3:00 p.m. and bid on one of our amazing opportunities. Every visitor can also enter to win our “Be A Celebrity for a Day” Door Prize. The winner will walk away with items with a retail value of $200, and a priceless chance to go behind the scenes at CORUS Entertainment Edmonton.
