October Pancakfest! Diana Leto's upcoming October events!

This October I am a busy pancake! Starting tomorrow, my October Pancakefest events begin! Here are the events!

Saturday, October 4th: Ronal McDonald House Chararity Event! 
Tomorrow I am taking part in a great private charity event for the Ronald McDonald House!
I created this flyer for this private event that 
is being co-run by Kids Comic Con for NYC's patients and their families, as well as patients/families from other NYC-area children's hospitals/care facilities. 
I'm really looking forward to this fun event tomorrow and am bringing some fun artwork to hand out!

Here's the flyer:
