Brenda Novak's Annual Auction for the Cure of Diabetes 2012

Every year Best Selling Author Brenda Novak and her Co Sponsors organize an Online Auction for Diabetes Research. Since the foundation's inception Brenda has raised over $1.3 million dollars through these auctions, and donated all the proceeds towards research for the cure of diabetes. This year, I have had the pleasure of being personally acquainted with Brenda through a wonderful mutual friend, Pierce Mattie of Pierce Mattie Public Relations and was invited to help out.

Through The Corvisiero Law Practice, the Corvisiero Literary Agency and Literary Powerhouse Consulting we have gathered our team and clients to offer donations to this great cause.

We are donating the following:

Corvisiero Law- Two Contract Reviews and Legal Entity Formation

Literary Powerhouse- One Hour Consultation

Corvisiero Literary Agency- Two Query Critiques

Cyndi Papia- Website Design with all the bells and whistles

Stacey Donaghy- 50 page Manuscript Critique
