i have a event listing that works great for today, in that it looks for the start and end fields info and if today falls inside that range it prints it out for todays date. that works wonderfully.
how do i get tomorrow and all the rest of the dates to print out with date as the heading of the section ie

9/2/13 Monday
event title 1
event title 2
event title 6
9/3/13 Tuesday
event title 3
event title 4
event title 12
9/4/13 wed

here is my code so far
include ('ctx.php');

//$result = mysqli_query($con,"select * from iwia_events where event_start < now() and event_end > DATE_ADD(DATE(now()), INTERVAL 11 MONTH)");
//$sql="select * from iwia_events WHERE event_start BETWEEN CURDATE() AND DATE_ADD(CURDATE(), INTERVAL 7 DAY)";
$sql="select * from iwia_events where event_start <= now() and event_end >= now()";
//$sql="select * from iwia_events where event_start < DATE_ADD(CURDATE(), INTERVAL -1 DAY) and event_end > CURDATE()";
//$sql="SELECT * FROM iwia_events WHERE event_start BETWEEN DATE_ADD(CURDATE(), INTERVAL -1 DAY) AND event_end > CURDATE()";

$result = mysqli_query($con,$sql);

if (!$result) {
    echo 'Could not run query: ' . mysql_error();
echo "<strong style='color:black;'>".date('l jS \of F')."</strong><br>";
while($row = mysqli_fetch_array($result))
  $start_event=date('m-d-Y', strtotime($row['event_start'])); 
  $end_event=date('m-d-Y', strtotime($row['event_end']));     
if ($row['active'] == "1") {
  echo '<IMG SRC="'.$row['event_image'].'" ALT="?" BORDER=0 style="width:90px; height:90px;" align="left"></div><br>';
  //echo "Location: ".$row['event_location']."<br>";
  if ($row['event_location']) {
      $loc = "Location: ".$row['event_location']."";
  else {
  echo " &nbsp;<A HREF='single_event.php?id=".$row['id']."' title=\"".$loc."\">".$row['event_title'] . "</a> <br>";
  echo "<span style='font-size: 10px; color: gray;'>&nbsp; Start: " . $start_event ." - End: ".$end_event."</span>";
  echo "<p>&nbsp;</p>";
if (!mysqli_num_rows($result)) {
	echo "No Events for today<br>";


note: i tried in the $sql = to do some testing but non worked. and i couldn't figure out how to do the days heading from the search.

Thank you in advance for any code or help you may provide.
