    The 4th Annual Tribute to Life skating exhibition will take place on Saturday, August 11, 2012 at 7:00 pm at the Newington Arena, Newington, CT.
    This is an annual figure skating exhibition held in memory of David Drake. Proceeds benefit the Helen & Harry Gray Cancer Center in Hartford, CT

    Thanks to the person who sent me the link to the event's Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/TributeToLife2012
    Ticket information isn't posted yet, but I'm sure it will be at some point.

    Newington Arena recently posted this short teaser/review video (Jennifer Wester also publicized it on her Facebook page: "One Night Every Year we dedicate our performances to LIFE and raising money for the Helen & Harry Gray Cancer Center at Hartford Hospital in honor of David Drake. Please help us continue this grand effort by donating, purchasing tickets, or otherwise helping out this great event and great cause!"): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFr8ZpLHoww

    Madison couldn't fly to CT since she had the flu, according to Jennifer Wester (who was busy co-hosting & skating in the show).
    I didn't have my camera with me, so I only took a few videos on my phone, but Tiffany Vise & Don Baldwin's Come What May program should be on youtube in a little bit.
