We have received the following press release from The Relay Rockers (one of the best known teams from Relay for Life of Second Life):

2014 Alliez Mysterio Award Invitation

2014 Alliez Mysterio Award Invitation

The Relay Rockers are planning to present an award in honor of their late co-founder Alliez Mysterio.

“To honor our friend and co-founder The Relay Rockers have established the Alliez Mysterio award. The award recognizes those people who have, like Alliez, made a lasting contribution to the world’s biggest virtual event, The Relay For Life of Second Life.”

Beginning this season the Rockers will present the Award to the Relayer(s) who they feel best exemplify Alliez’ dedication by their contribution to Relay.

The award is to be presented at the team’s Thank You party, Sunday August 24, 2014, with the party beginning at 3pm.

The award will be given to the person or persons who, in the opinion of the team’s award committee, have exhibited “Relentless Dedication” and have made an “Enduring Contribution” to the Relay For Life of Second Life. “

Alliez Mysterio came to Second Life in 2003. A pioneering virtual explorer Alliez saw the potential of the nascent private island sims and in 2005 her first sim, Rue d’Alliez opened. From that single island d’Alliez Estates spread over the grid, growing to more than 150 islands. She established a system of ownership and rentals that has provided a home to many residents of Second Life regardless of their virtual manifestations, lifestyles or interests. She made every effort to accommodate her tenants, was always there to address issues and was loved by all who came to know her.

In 2005 she joined with Trader Whiplash and Nuala Maracas and formed the team that became known as the Relay Rockers. From 2005 until breast cancer took her from us in 2013 Alliez was a steadfast supporter of both the Relay Rockers and Relay For Life of Second Life.

2014 Alliez Mysterio Award

Alliez Mysterio left an indelible imprint on our virtual world and she is missed by one and all. This Award will honor both Alliez’s memory and the dedication of the awardees.

The Rockers, who celebrated ’10 Years Walking Strong’ this season finished with the highest possible fund raising level, Purple. They raised more than L$5 million through their signature events, Bid Me Bald and the Celebrate-Remember-Fight Back Top DJ Competition. They were also honoured during Relay weekend with the coveted “Returning Team Participation Award” as well as 1st place for The Inventive and Creative Fundraising Award and 2nd place for The Cancer Education Campsite Award.

The party, which will be held at Seasons dAlliez, will feature Gina Gracemount, a team supporter and Bid Me Bald ‘Victimteer’, performing live at 3pm and close with T1Radio’s Time Machine – the 60s, featuring Trader Whiplash. The 2014 Award Winner(s) will be announced at 4pm by Rockers Founding Captains Nuala Maracas & Trader Whiplash, 2014 Team Captain Ariel Stormcrow and Sue Peregrine, Alliez’s daughter and CEO of dAlliez Estates.”

Everyone is invited to attend and are asked to dress in semi-formal attire.

Make sure you watch the show too – where you can see what Cain Maven’s new home on Casa looks like furnished, according to some of the ideas discussed on the show, as we explore how we can define quality in a virtual market. And we learn more about mesh templates and how they can be used in building. And there are some thoughts on the gacha phenomenon too – which will be the subject of an article in the next issue of Prim Perfect – part of our exciting relaunch (of which more soon!).

Hope Ball Poster

Hope Haven Heroes and Two Moon Paradise are delighted to invite you to the Hope Ball  in the Zen Garden, Two Moon Paradise, to celebrate survivors and caregivers on National Cancer Survivors Day on Sunday June 1st.

The Hope Ball will feature music chosen by DJ Aryon Dagger who is herself a two-time cancer survivor. Aryon will spin the discs from 1.30pm-3pm, and then there will be a live performance from SL musician Voodoo Shilton from 3pm to 4pm.

On Sunday, June 1, 2014, cancer survivors across the globe will unite to show the world what life after cancer looks like. This unique celebration will mark the 27th annual National Cancer Survivors Day. Thousands of people in hundreds of communities across the U.S. and abroad – and in Second Life – will hold celebrations on this day to honour cancer survivors and to show that there is life after a cancer diagnosis – and it’s something to celebrate.

Hope Haven at the American Cancer Society Island

Hope Haven at the American Cancer Society Island

National Cancer Survivors Day is an annual worldwide Celebration of Life. It is the one day each year that we come together to honour everyone who is living with a history of cancer. A ‘survivor’ is defined by the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation, administrator for the celebration as anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life.

NCSD provides an opportunity for cancer survivors to connect with other survivors, celebrate milestones, and recognize the healthcare providers, family, and friends who have supported them along the way. It is a day for cancer survivors to stand together and show the world what life after cancer looks like.

NCSD is recognized by the American Cancer Society. See here for more information. And you can also visit the American Cancer Society island, which has been especially decorated for the day.

SL11B-logo-512x512Here’s a little teaser pic from this year’s Community Celebration – where the land is being parcelled out ready for exhibitors and the stage and auditorium are being built ready for performers and presenters …

But no spoilers here – just a little fun jigsaw puzzle for you to enjoy!

And don’t worry if you haven’t heard about your application yet. They have a lot of applications to sort – and it will take a while to go through them all carefully and to notify those who have been successful. You can see more details here.

SL11B Community Celebration

SL11B Community Celebration

The applications to exhibit, perform or present at SL11B Community Celebration have now closed – but don’t panic if you haven’t heard anything yet!

They have a lot of applications to sort – and it will take a while to go through them all carefully and to notify those who have been successful (and, sadly, there will be some who will be disappointed).

As KT Syakumi posted on the website:

 We had 426 exhibitor applications, 440 Performer applications and over 300 volunteers! Now begins the task of sorting through all your applications and figuring out how to fit you all into 243 plots and 3 stages.. Our first priority is exhibitors, as the sims open for you lot on the 30th of May – not as far away as you’d think! Acceptances for you will start coming in the next few days and will continue over the next week. Please be patient as we have a lot to work through! We’ll post the dates that performers can expect to hear from us in a while, but that will be closer to our opening date of June 22 – we won’t forget you, promise!

There are more details on the website – so do go and take a look at the full post.
