As the first Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in Second Life season draws to a close as the month of October comes to an end, the MSABC Across SL committee have announced a special MSABC Across SL Awards Gala.
This special event will take place at the Rose Theatre, Angel Manor, on Sunday, November 2nd, 2014, commencing at 13:00 SLT and running through until 14:00 SLT, as will feature a special awards ceremony followed by a gala ball in the Rose Ballroom.
The awards being presented at the event have been created to honour those people in Second Life who have provided awareness, generosity, and vision to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Across Second Life movement.
These awards include:
Margery Gould Rath Award: named after the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer movement, this award will be presented to the individual who has embraced the concept, spirit, and message of Making Strides with humility, care, and dedication.
Making Strides Awareness Award: will be presented to the individual who has spread the concept, message, and mission of Making Strides in Second Life the most.
Friends of Strides Award: will be presented to individuals throughout the Second Life community who have contributed to the Making Strides season in Second Life in various ways.
Tickle Me Pink Award: will be presented to who gave funny and laughable moments throughout the 2014 Making Strides season.
Pink Power Award: will be presented to those individuals who took “wearing pink” to an entire new level!
In addition there will also be special Pink Club Sponsor and Pink Striders Awards.
The awards ceremony will be broadcast live by T1 Radio, and the gala ball will commence immediately after ceremony, featuring music from DJ Trader1 Whiplash.
Attendance at the awards and the gala ball is free, although formal attire (black tie for the men, gowns for the ladies) is required.
The first Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Across Second Life season has been a tremendous success, featuring events and activities right across the grid. At the time of writing, over US$16,000 has been raised during the course of the month, and this may well rise even higher by the time of the awards gala.
