A Huge Success!
You guys blew my mind with your overwhelmingly positive response to the idea of a little holiday-season Scifi Expo! I’m so glad to call you all my friends, plus I made a bunch of new friends too! 🙂 We had literally not one single serious drama problem, and the friendliness and positive attitudes of everyone made the Expo thoroughly enjoyable for us all. If we ever decide to do another Scifi Expo, you’ll all get another invite to come play with us again.
Which brings me to the subject your generosity and the purpose of the Expo — helping a good cause.
The Bottom Line
Thanks to you all, the Scifi Expo generated a grand total of 145,791 L$ for Relay for Life of Second Life. The money will be safely held in a top-secret, impregnable vault until the official RFL “fundraising season” begins in April, when it will be donated in one giant lump.
The Closing Speech
We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who has supported the Scifi Expo team and helped us raise money for a very good cause, The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Second Life.
We would also like to thank all the exhibitors for the awesome booths around the Christmas village, and the time and Lindens they selflessly donated. Without these great creators we couldn’t have pulled off a successful Expo, so thank you for your creativity and showing us your amazing skills!
The entertainers and event organizers did wonderful jobs keeping us coming back again and again. We want to send huge thanks to:
- the unflagging DJ Puddles
- the inspiring DJ Nita
- the cosmic Alazarin Mobius’ Interplanetary Liberation Front
- the whimsical Sailor V and Crixus Crucifixus’ CryoCube Theatre
- the fantastic Lightning Strikes Tribute Band
- the mystical Bó’ài Hónglián Companions Guild
- the genius-inspired Winds of the Sahara cabaret group
- the incomparable singing voice of Jeffah
- and everyone else that contributed things to the Expo.
Our greatest thanks goes, of course, to you, the Expo patrons, our friends, for your mind-blowing generosity during the last two months.
When I first got the idea to do a little Expo, I never dreamed so many people would respond so positively, both from their hearts and from their wallets. Our tiny little scifi expo has raised over 145,000 L$ for the RFL as of this moment. I can’t thank you all enough. Once we have counted up the total Linden dollars that the Expo raised, we will post a Notice in-world and on our official blog.
So thank you EVERYONE!!!!!!!!
This concludes the “Rockets and Sprockets” 2017 Fall/Winter SciFi Mini Expo!!!!!!
