Just got word about this from the folks over at DRI:
Novelist Brenda Novak’s 4th Annual Online Auction Adds Diabetes Research Institute as Beneficiary
(Sacramento, CA), May 2008 – As the mother of a child with type 1 diabetes, bestselling author Brenda Novak uses the creativity and vision she calls upon regularly as a writer to create the 4th Annual Online Auction to Benefit Diabetes Research. Held each May in honor of Mother’s Day, the month-long event can be accessed at www.brendanovak.com from May 1st through May 31, 2008. This year, a new beneficiary has been added, the Diabetes Research Institute – a place Novak has come to know as the best hope for a cure for her son and the millions of others living with this insidious disease.
