Nautical Smile is a special event being held at Holly Kai Park in aid of Feed A Smile / Live and Learn Kenya.
The event marks the first major fund-raiser to be held for Feed A Smile at Holly Kai Park, which was adopted as the park’s new charity in February 2017.
Organised and hosted by Rossini Events, Nautical Smile will take place at The Pavilion, Holly Kai Park, and will feature 10 hours of music starting at 11:00 SLT, and finishing at 21:00 SLT, with one hour sets from some of Second Life’s top DJs, and live performers.
The live performances at Nautical Smile will include a “double Dutch” back-to-back paring of singers from the Netherlands, Thera D and Hedy Patrucci-Collazo, who will be appearing at 12:00 noon and 1:00pm respectively. They’ll be followed by Akilikos Singer at 2:00pm, and Sal from 3:00pm. The entire event is sponsored by Meerkats Estates.

“Nautical Smile follows up on our hugely successful events in January and February for the same wonderful charity,” Michael said. “This month we have been given the use of a terrific location, courtesy of Hollywood Real Estates, right on the Blake Sea. So it will be possible to sail there as well as the more conventional teleport.”
About Feed A Smile
Feed A Smile is a programme run by Live and Learn Kenya (LLK) to provide nutritious warm lunches for over 400 children every day, paid for entirely from donations to the project. It is part of a broader programme managed by LLK, which includes finding sponsors to finance the education of children in Kenya, helping to provide them with everything they need: uniforms, shoes, text books, school supplies, etc., and even building a school in Nakuru, Kenya.
In addition, the organisation also provides medical and dental care for children, including check-ups and vaccinations. 100% of the donations received by LLK are transferred directly to Kenya to care for children, provide education, medicine, food, shelter and foster care. Nothing is lost to salaries, fees or administrative costs at LLK.
