Second Life Fantasy Faire 2019

Fantasy Faire is back! The popular annual fundraiser for the American Cancer Society runs from April 18th to May 5th this year. In addition to the shopping event, there is a literary festival, a quest, silent and live auctions, roleplay, arts and entertainment, and a masked ball. You can get all the information on these and many other events from the Fantasy Faire 2019 website.

Relay For Life of Second Life

Relay for Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event. The first Relay For Life of Second Life took place on Saturday, August 27th, and Sunday, August 28th, 2005. It was the brainchild of Jade Lily (who in real life was an airman called Keith Morris) and was reported in the The New York Times in an article called Letting your fingers do the running. The two-day event raised a total of US$5,000.

Since then, Relay for Life in Second Life has grown year by year into one of the largest celebrations in Second Life. In 2017, almost a thousand avatars raised US$230,000 for cancer research and treatment through a variety of in-world events and fundraisers. (Here’s an official SL wiki page which outlines the entire history of Relay for Life in SL.)
