The event is from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. and is open to the public. The event will feature the booths of many of the non-profit service organizations of Paris.
Inspirational speaker and former professional football player Keith Davis and his associates will return this year to be the feature presentation.
An autographing session will be held immediately after.
