.. art auction benefiting RFL ..

Art is the desire of a man to express himself,
to record the reactions of his personality
to the world he lives in.
~Amy Lowell



The Inspired Dreamwalkers are a Relay For Life team in Second Life.  This team has been active for several years and annually present silent art auctions to raise linden for Relay For Life of Second Life.  As you might know, Relay For Life is the premier fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and has had a presence in Second Life for 12 years.  Their team captain, JT Marchant, honored me by asking if I’d submit a couple of pieces for their art auction that starts today (April 8, 2016) at 9am SLT (PDT).  There are many pieces to be bid on and the bidding will close on Sunday (April 10) at 3pm SLT (PDT).

Live entertainment is planned for opening day:

  • Friday 4/8 – 4pm SLT – Whirli Placebo
  • Friday 4/8 – 5pm SLT – Eliz Watanabe

Drop by Dancing Swan Island and remember to win an auction, you must bid early and often so that you can get the piece that you desire.  There are some beautiful pieces available from some of the wonderful SL photographers/artists you know.

The two pieces that I’ve donated were created exclusively for this event.  Both were recently captured at Everlong, a lovely sim for relaxing and snapping pics.

I hope you will stop by the auction and find a piece that will look perfect on your wall!  Or just drop a few linden in a kiosk to support this awesome group of people – the Inspired Dreamwalkers.


.. HGE’s final days ..

The Second Life Home and Garden Expo of 2016 is coming to a close.  This event is one of the annual mega events that raises funds on behalf of Relay For Life of Second Life for the American Cancer Society.  This year’s event has gone wonderfully with loads of home and garden designers participating along with the breedable community.
