The 2014 SL Christmas Expo & Winter Breedables Fair is now under way, and runs through until Monday, December 15th, 2014. As usual, this annual event offers something for everyone, including the opportunity to help raise funds for Relay For Life of Second Life, an official charity of the American Cancer Society.
On Saturday, December 6th, as a part of the event, there will be a very special auction, with 100% of proceeds going directly to RFL of SL.
