March Madness: Lupus style

We have two events coming up at Sara Gorman's Pillbags, and I hope you can make it!
 
Coming up on Saturday, March 16th, I'll be heading to Richmond, VA to participate in the LFA-DMV's annual Virginia Summit, which is always a great day of lupus education, support, and awareness. I'll be setting up shop with my book and Pillbags, alongside several other vendors, so be sure to stop by while you're there. 

I'm also hoping to take a tour of the interactive Purple bus as it makes a stop in Richmond along the Help Us Solve the Cruel MysteryTM National tour. Here's a description of the summit itself - and you can register for the great event here:

Also coming up on Wednesday, March 20th, in Alexandria, VA, I'll be joining the LFA-DMV to host a Lupus Night at Pizzaiolo, where a percentage of the evening's proceeds will go to lupus charity. I'll have a table set up with my books and Pillbags - and will look forward to seeing you there. Don't forget - 5% of sales at Sara Gorman's Pillbags ALWAYS goes to lupus charity, but wouldn't it be fun to hand pick your pillbag? I'm hoping to unveil my new spring line at the upcoming event - fingers crossed my manufacturer cooperates!
