Authors and Dancers Against Cancer, Park Inn Radisson, Toledo, Ohio
The 2nd annual Authors & Dancers Against Cancer is taking place on August 7th & 8th at the Park Inn, Toledo, Ohio. I attended the first event last year and it was both heartwarming and extremely well organized. You can’t go wrong coming to ADAC. We will have a great line-up of authors and great raffle prizes, like a laptop and a play station. August 7th will be a dance recital with donations benefitting the Dancer's Against Cancer Organization and August 8th will be the book signing event with a dinner afterward. Dinner tickets will go on sale after the first of the year. I’ll have 2 general admission tickets to give away for free! Click here for tickets!
