I really wanted to talk about this great cause that Lacie Beningborough and others are putting on. The event is called Adopt-A-Family Benefit which raises money for those families, in the real world, in need during the holidays. This is the second year that Lacie has put on this show. It would be amazing if you guys could take time out of your busy schedules to come and donate to this worthy cause. I am blessed to be apart of the benefit show so please come and enjoy it. Ohh, did I forget to mention that all of the outfits shown in the show are up to be auctioned off after the show to the highest bidders. So you could come, enjoy a hawt fashion show, possibly get an amazing outfit by top designers in second life and help out a really great cause.
Here is a special message from Lacie herself,
Christmas is coming and for many of us, it is a time of joy, family, happiness and cheer. We look forward to seeing family and friends, to laughter, and togetherness.
For some though, the holiday season is a time filled with stress and worry. These difficult economic times that we live in bring that much more stress to this time of year.
That is why I have founded the Adopt A Family Benefit.
This began in November of 2009, when it was brought to my attention that a family was in very dire need that year. They were in jeopardy of losing everything, the husband had just lost his job and she had two chronically ill children.
I was so saddened by this that I began this benefit for her.
In three weeks, to my astonishment, we were able to raise a tremendous amount of USD for this family.
I said it would become a tradition, and with that promise behind me, I am back to do it again this year.
This time I would like to help more than one family. I would like to help as many families as I possibly can.
I approached Mr. Frolic Mills about this and he has donated the Patch Thibaud Auditorium and the possible inclusion of the new MISS VIRTUAL WORLD alongside with the contest's finalists.
"Since we don't know who they will be yet, we can't confirm the assistance of them all, but we will do our best." He said.
We are hoping this will be an opportunity to see the newly crowned queen in her first show !
How awesome is that?
