So this past weekend was the 4th Writers On The River in East Peoria, Illinois. While I've been every year so far, I have to say this one was by far the busiest. It still blows me away how big it's become over the years.
First off, the things these four ladies do for their charity, is mind-blowing. Their donation total over the 4 years is $24,500 cash and $1,000 shelter supplies. How amazing is that??? This past event raised $8,000 with 360 readers attending!
And look at all of these authors!!!
This event is so well run. It's organized, the volunteers are helpful, always walking by your table and making sure that you're happy and you have everything that you need. And while the four ladies who started the charity event are super busy on the day of, they are always there to answer your questions. They do what they can to accommodate you in anyway possible.
I seriously can't thank these girls enough for having me back each year.
