4pm SLT: Last Lantern Release Ceremony
Every day at 4pm, there is a special lantern release ceremony from the roof of the Main Theatre at the Expo.

Often the event takes place in comparative silence – a break from the busyness (and the business) of the Expo – a time to reflect, remember and mourn.

But the LAST Lantern Release is very different – a time to celebrate the Expo and all we’ve achieved. And we RIDE those lanterns into the heavens!

Set your windlight to midnight and join us – or watch from afar.

The Nita10 Greywolf Memorial Auction -for Breedables at 12 noon SLT

Zooby's
Evo Fairies at the Auction

We have an annual Breedables Auction at the Home and Garden Expo, but this year it’s very special.

It’s named in honour of Nita10 Greywolf, a long-standing breedables fan, a strong supporter of Relay for Life of Second Life, and a very courageous woman.

Perhaps only her closest friends in Second Life realised quite how ill Nita herself was. Once a powerful DJ, she had lost her voice to throat cancer, and it had spread.

Several nights ago, she made a call to the RFL Volunteers group, asking for help. And OldeSoul Eldamar took her call.

She was clearly in great pain. In real life, she was surrounded by her family, and she and they knew she had very little time left. But she wanted to do one last thing in Second Life. She wanted to make sure her breedables went to benefit Relay – and also go where they will be loved.

She passed them all – ultra rares that she had been breeding especially – to OldeSoul. And he arranged for them to be passed to the Auction, which we have named in honour of a very brave lady, who thought at the end of how she could help others through her gift.

OldeSoul ended the call with a hug, and much love. Afterwards, he learned that she died about an hour later.

She has donated Barnyard Duck Nests, Amaretto Horses and Evo Fairies. There will be other breedables on sale – Kittycats and Fennuxes, and we thank their donors too.

And there will be a very special Evo Fairy, created in her memory.

KhrysT Lords of Evo has organised the creation of a special limited edition Evo Fairy, shown in the picture above. There are only 50 available, and 20 will be sold at the Auction today (the others will be available at later RFL events).

So please come and join us at 12 noon today … and make this an auction to remember.
