As you saw from my previous post, a “Bid Me Bald” event to raise funds for the Relay for Life of Second Life campaign was held on Sunday, March 21 at Sol Mañanero Surf. The RFL of SL team Eternal Beacon, hosted and our team captain, Dione Kohime, pulled double duty and DJ’d as well.
It was a fun-filled event. I had opposing kiosks set up. One asking party-goers to bid for me to be bald, and one asking to let me keep my hair. There was a definite push as it was evident just who wanted me bald and who loves to see me in hair! LOL Each time Linden were paid to the “Bid Me Bald” kiosk, I would groan…and then Linden would drop into the “Keep Me in Hair” kiosk to which I would cheer! For 2 hours, we were entertained with the music that DJ Dione laid down from awesome mash-ups to songs about Sunshine/Sunny/etc… we danced, chatted, hoo’d and laughed! One of my friends, Kekoa Arbizu, filmed the party and put together this video…take a look, it tells you a bit more about the “Bid Me Bald” event and shows us having a great time!!
At the end of the event… looking to the kiosks, I found that those that favored the Baldness came in a bit higher requiring me to be bald for 2 days! And then after some late breaking donations were made through Monday night (after this photo was done), I was up to 3 days bald!
Now…the coolest thing about this whole event?!? We raised over L$126,000 Linden for Relay for Life of Second Life benefitting American Cancer Society (late donations totaling an additional 2800L were received after above photo done). The generosity of all amazed me and while I know that many might have wanted to see me bald for more days, I think that the offsetting kiosks worked to bring in more linden!!! Thank you all to those that joined me and that paid my kiosk through Monday night for that reason. The “Bid Me Bald” event for Sunshine is over… hmmm should I do another one? 🙂
‘Til Next Time…
