Local Montana author Danica Winters will be hosting a benefit for the Missoula YWCA through the Smoke and Ashes Launch & Benefit Raffle. Her book, Smoke and Ashes, introduces you into a relationship in which the heroine feels trapped in an unhealthy and abusive relationship. Danica says she felt a special need to raise awareness and funds for this organization because not only have my character’s lives been affected by domestic violence she has dealt with it within her own life.

Danica has also decided all money raised through the benefit will go directly to the Missoula YWCA. YWCA Missoula is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

Danica's book Smoke & Ashes is already on sale at most bookstores.

Danica has also started to receive donations for the Smoke and Ashes Launch & Benefit Raffle. The raffle tickets will be offered at all Missoula book signing events: April 30 at Hastings from 1-3 p.m., and the final day (in which I shall pick winners) is May 7 at Fact and Fiction from 11-1 p.m.

Raffle items include books, wine and spirits, household goods, Baskin Robbins gift cards, a variety of other great prizes! Thanks to Janie Crouch (a Harlequin author from Germany) there are donations coming from across the world! J Cash donations have started to arrive including Rocky Mountain Dental Lab and Kohl’s of Missoula
