In October 2013, the 'Shades of Pink' event raised over $10.700 for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

This event was repeated in 2014, with $962 in proceeds to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, with 22 authors, some of them best-selling veteran writers, others on their way to being published, donating a short story penned especially for a gift-anthology.

Thank you to all authors and donors who participated in this event!
