Home & Garden Expo 2014

2014 Home and Garden Expo

Announcing the 7th Annual Home and Garden Expo

Home and Garden Expo 2014, benefitting RFL of SL, opens on September 16, and runs through the 28th. Spread over nine sims, HGE features the finest in Second Life Home and Garden design product and creator tools. Over 85 participating creators have joined HGE, one of the first mega-events of the 2015 Relay For Life fundraising drive in Second Life.

Relay For Life of Second Life is in its tenth season, as Second Life residents across the grid band together to raise funds for Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society. The funds raised go to finance cancer research. During the 2014 season, RFL of SL broke the $415,000.00 USD mark for total funds raised.

This year’s HGE is supported by nine Platinum Sponsors and eight Gold Sponsors. This year’s event also includes, for the first time, a comprehensive shopping guide listing all donation items, new releases, hunt, raffle and gatcha items. New rules and a new layout for HGE reduces lag and provides ample display space for each of the participants’ products.

Hair Fair 2013

It’s that time of year again! Yes, Hair Fair 2013 starts tomorrow! Hair Fair is an event that raises money for the charity Wigs for Kids. Every hair at the event, has a minimum of 15% going to Wigs for kids. On the last day of Hair Fair is Bandana Day, where we remove our hair to show we care, in support of those that have lost hair, or suffer from hair loss. Every year people submit their bandanas they have made using the kits that were provided and are sold for 50L each (trans) on all 4 sims for the duration of the event. More information can be found on the official Hair Fair site.

I have included a sample, a teaser if you will, of a small selection of hairs that are available at Hair Fair this year.

Fantasy Faire 2013

One of the greatest things about Fantasy Faire is seeing all the amazing environs created to help our enjoyment of a truly wonderful event! I did my best on taking a shot of each sim that I felt best represented the overall feel of the sim. Fantasy Faire opens at noon on April 20th.

About Relay For Life of Second Life:

Relay For Life® is the signature fundraiser of the American Cancer Society. Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL) is an annual activity that takes place in Second Life® in July each year. Volunteers form or join teams to have fun while fundraising and raising awareness from mid-March through mid-July. In July teams build campsites and walk a track, just like in a real world Relay. The main RFL of SL track event this year will take place on July 16-17. We will walk a virtual track for 24 hours, just like in a real world Relay For Life. Team members build and gather at their team campsites, enjoy live music, participate in fun events, and explore the many Relay sims and the incredible builds by some of Second Life’s top designers, as the event runs overnight and into the next morning.

In 2010 Relay For Life of Second Life attracted more than 120 teams with participants from over 30 countries, held over 300 team fundraising events between March and July, and raised over US$222,000 (that’s REAL US dollars) for cancer research and education. The funds raised go to research, advocacy, patient services and programs, with 12-15% going to international projects. Just as in the real world, RFL of SL is an international event.
