Women’s conference: Sisters to the Rescue

I have previously submitted a hard copy press release of this event, but have not seen in on your events calendar yet. Can you please list it for us? Also, the event has a website that describes the event schedule and biographies of the speakers. The website address is www.sisterstotherescue.com. Our keynote speaker is Jason Wright, nationally known writer of “Christmas Jars” and other books, who grew up in Charlottesville and still calls Virginia his home. He is available for an interview. May I ask for Jane to consider such an interview with him concerning our event?
