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.
4pm SLT: Lantern Release Ceremony
Every day at 4pm, there is a special lantern release ceremony from the roof of the Main Theatre at the Expo.
Sometimes people speak, but 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. Set your windlight to midnight and join us – or watch from afar.
Music Theatre Grab that dance partner and head over for some fun entertainment at the stage today. Good times and good tunes all in support of Relay For Life of Secondlife at the Home Expo!
Entertainment at The Home Expo Theatre on this last weekend of the event is full of great music provided by some of Second Life’s TOP performers.
2pm: Satin & Erin
Satin Galli and Erin68 Frog are two of SL’s best live vocalists! Being a real life couple, they perform a mix of duets and solos of favorite cover songs. Their spirited banter and laughter, interaction with the crowds, and top vocals make for a fantastic hour of entertainment!
3pm: Wolfie Starfire
Wolfie Starfire, also known as Meg Groves, took interest in theatre at a young age, and aspired to be successful in the worlds of both music and film. She took many singing, acting and dance classes, and dabbled in the film and commercial industries. Meg is currently pursuing a BFA in Acting at Coastal Carolina University.
5pm: Keeba Tammas
Keeba Tammas is one of the finest female vocalists in Second Life. A professional vocalist for many years, Keeba was in a variety of bands in the eighties. She also did voice overs for cartoons and commercials. A seasoned performer in SL as well, Keeba is a very sought after female vocalist here in our virtual world. From the first song to the last she delivers a power packed punch … belting out her songs with tremendous energy and shear raw talent.
6pm: Djembe Dragonfire
Djembe Dragonfire’s background includes many years of professional musical experiences including conducting, teaching, and performing, he has sung in a major opera chorus, sung solos in many churches, and even sang back up vocals on a CD produced for a contemporary vocal artist. Djembe has taught instrumental and voice private lessons and also in music programs in public schools. His voice is amazing and if you haven’t been to one of his shows, you especially need to head over the The Expo today!
