Patterson agrees to help make the June 19-22 Newburgh Illuminated festival an even more exciting event by offering up the following:

"Hi, I’m James Patterson and I’d like to make you famous! As someone who was “Made in Newburgh,” I am supporting the efforts of Newburgh Illuminated, an annual festival this June 19th through 22nd that shines a light on all that is wonderful about the City of Newburgh NY. I write novels – lots of them. I will help make someone immortal by naming a character after them in one of my upcoming novels. Just make a tax-deductible donation of $25.00 or more to Newburgh Illuminated to try your turn for a shot at immortality".
