Rock Your Rack 2018 in Second Life

Rock Your Rack is the annual fund-raiser for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) opened its doors September 29th, 2018, and remains in full swing through until Sunday, October 13th, 2018, offering shopping, music, fashion shows, entertainment and art.

Some 1.7 million women – and men – were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012, the year in which Rock Your Rack was founded by Jamee Sandalwood and the team at Models Giving Back. Today, the figure still stands at around 1.6 million world-wide. NBCF’s mission is to help women in the United States by providing help and inspiring hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services. NBCF is also joining hands with organisations around the globe to provide breast cancer education. Rock Your Rack aims to raise funds to support all of these activities.

Rock Your Rack 2018

Located on a single region, the event is sponsored by {ACD} Anam Cara Designs, Digital Farm System (DFS), Evolve, Heartsdale Jewellery, and MOZ Designs, with a further 60+ designers taking part – see the full list on the Rock Your Rack website.

As with previous years, supporting designers have been asked to provide a limited edition item, of which 100% of all proceeds of sales go towards Rock Your Rack. In addition, and to encourage visits to the event, designers have been asked to offer an exclusive item their customers can only purchase via Rock Your Rack.  You can find out more about the limited edition and exclusive offers at the event here.

Rock Your Rack 2018 Art Show

The theme for the event is Music Through The Decades, and reflection of this, the Rock Your Rack Art show has taken on a distinctly 50’s Rock’n’Roll diner look.

Sponsored by Kultivate magazine, the Art show presents work by CybeleMoon (Hana Hoobinoo), Sheba Blitz, Eleseren Brianna, John Brianna (johannes1977), Eucalyptus Carroll, Ilyra Chardin,  StorieS Helendale (GlitterPrincess Destiny), Vee Tammas Shocker (Veruca Tammas), JolieElle Parfort, Pipit Peacedream (retroye), jamee Sandalwood, Vee Tammas Shocker (Veruca Tammas), FreeDom Voix and Myra Wildmist.

Full details on the entertainment – music, fashions shows and more –  at the event can be found on the Rock Your Rack calendar, which I’ve taken the liberty of embedding below for ease of reference here – you can also see it on the Rock Your Rack website, together with a list of performers and performances. All times at SLT.

For those who like a challenge, there is also the Rock Your Rack hunt.

A part of the NBCF’s work is that of breast cancer education. This is something I strongly support having learned through my own experience just how important it is to be aware of the risks cancer presents, and the need for early identification and treatment. Caught early enough, it can be dealt with, as my own experience shows. As such, I encourage everyone to visit and support Rock Your Rack over the next two weeks and contribute to the NBCF’s work.
