Via the poster 'wouldacoulda' at FSU:
"The 4th Annual Tribute to Life skating exhibition will take place at Newington Arena in Newington, CT on Saturday, August 11th. This show benefits the Cancer Center at Hartford Hospital, and is done in memory of Dave Drake, who was an adult skater in CT. Last year the Kerrs were the headliners, and they brought the house down!"
Viktor Petrenko is this year's headliner: http://www.newingtonarena.com/
I will update this thread with more events if there is interest. Please share information on any upcoming club & benefit shows you'd like to publicize!
Here's hoping skating fans will support any local events being held in their area and report back here!
