The 2019 SL Christmas Expo in support of the American Cancer Society via Relay for Life of Second Life will take place from Thursday, December 5th through Sunday, December 15th, 2019 with the theme of Believe in the Magic of Christmas, and the doors have opened for merchant registrations and sponsorship.
Believe in the Magic of Christmas will focus on childhood cancers and their treatment, with the press release noting:
For kids Christmas is a Magical Season! And so, this year the Expo has a new mission. Together with the American Cancer Society and our partners at Linden Lab, the expo will be supporting Childhood Cancer initiatives of The Society. All proceeds of the Expo will be directed to support research and palliative efforts to help children with cancer.
This year, the organisers plan to have:
- more than 100 merchants,
- Breedables and one-of-a-kind auctions,
- nearly non-stop musical performances,
- Gachas and hunts.
- Christmas trees, ice skating, and a snowman building contest
- Santa and Mrs. Claus and the elves
- The Holidays of Hope Ball.
The event will also encompass the popular Lights of Hope house decorating contest, featuring homes built and decorated by some of Second Life’s best home builders.
