Christmas is a time for giving, and on Sunday the 8th December, 2013, Bay City will be hosting their annual Christmas Tree Lighting and fundraiser.
Activities will commence at 13:00 SLT and run through until 16:00 SLT and will take place at the Bay City fairgrounds. On offer will be:
- Live entertainment
- A skating party
- A silent auction
- refreshments and fun.
The silent auction will take place throughout the event, and will conclude at 16:00 SLT, when activities officially draw to a close. All proceeds from the silent auction and from donation bins at the venue will go to Child’s Play Charity, a 501c3 non-profit organisation offering online communities such as the Bay City Alliance an opportunity to help seriously ill children around the globe during their hospital stays with the purchase of games and gaming equipment.
Request to Second Life Designers and Artists
To assist with the fund-raising auction, the organisers of the tree lighting are asking that SL designers and artists to consider donating fun, interesting, unique, or other transferrable items (or a no-copy object that an auction winner can use to redeem their prize in the case of no transfer items) which both reflect well on Second Life and which can be offered as auction items.
If you are willing to provide one or more items, please contact Marianne McCann for details on how to participate.
