Need help with PHP with href not working.

The Read More link is not working with the commneted code to Read More.  However, I took the print out of $newLink and subsitute that for $newLink in the commented code of ReadMore and that Link works just fine.  Why is that so?  Thanks.
echo "Event link is " .$newLink;
					  //echo "<li><span class='date'>" . $newDate ."</span><br/><i>" .$event->title. "</i><br/><a href='http://www.google.com/calendar/hosted/labctsi.org/event?eid=bmFzZnF0dTFvbjA3MzZycnRuaTNnYmo1YjAgY2Jpc0BsYWJjdHNpLm9yZw'>Read More</a></li>";
					  
					  echo "<li><span class='date'>" . $newDate ."</span><br/><i>" .$event->title. "</i><br/><a href='".$newlink."'>Read More</a></li>";
