Fantasy Faire -- Relay for Life (04.05.11)

You're not seeing double. I performed again, for the second time this week, at the Relay for Life Fantasy Faire in Second Life. I'm not sure what happened to the person who was scheduled to play today at noon, but as they say, shit happens. In any case, my wonderful manager (and cancer survivor) Maali contacted me yesterday to see if there was any possibility I could fill in for this vacant slot, and I was happy to do so. After all, who wants to spend their lunch hour checking sports scores when you could be playing fun music and raising money for a great cause?

Speaking of raising money, this year's RFL events are off to a brisk start. I am very proud to say that while I was performing today, the Fantasy Faire hit a big landmark: $10,000 USD raised! I was very happy about this, as you'd imagine. Please keep in mind that this amazing event, with some of the neatest builds I've ever seen in SL, continues through Sunday 4/10. Go check it out... it's very worthwhile to visit!

Strumming, singing, and badgering people to donate money. All in a day's work. Photos by Diana Renoir.
