On Sunday, September 27th, Stand up 2 Cancer In Second Life relaxes the climax of two weeks of music and fund-raising aright acorss the grid in support of the global efforts of Stand Up 2 Cancer (SU2C).
Organised by Still Braveheart, the event has this years been supported by over 150 artists and more than 40 venues. Since launching on September 12th. an incredible L$2,700,685 has been raised through the concerts and events just through in-world donations alone (the totals raised through the UK and USA team pages still have to be tallied). This means hitting the L$ 3 million total on the last day is entirely possible!
Things will kick-off at 10:00 at LC Live! with the conclusion of the SU2C in SL Date Auction – your chance to go on a 2-hour date with an SL performer, venue owner or personality. I’ve also heard a whisper that there will be a very special auction prize as well, so be sure to be at LC Live!
The music also commences at 10:00, with Bring a Friend and Stay Awhile opening the line up, and both Jimbo’s and The Dirty Grind sharing the load. At the time of writing, the schedule stood as follows: (all times SLT):

All donations made during Stand Up 2 Cancer in Second Life will be divided equally between Stand up 2 Cancer’s work in Canada, the UK, and the USA. Those who prefer, can donate directly to Stand Up 2 Cancer in the UK and the USA by visiting the SU2C in SL UK team donation page or the SU2C in SL USA donation page.
Stand Up 2 Cancer provides an innovative approach to ending cancer, which puts funds directly where they are needed: into leading-edge cancer research and treatment, and undertaking aggressive research programmes. 100% of all donations made through SU2C goes directly into funding this work, none is lost to “administrative costs” or put aside for CEO or executive salaries, etc. So you can be sure your donations are going directly to where they can do the most good.
This is a great opportunity to support efforts to bring about an end to cancer. so if you’ve not already done so, don’t forget to hop over to one of the venues and enjoy some great entertainment and support a great cause!
