Simply Stunned…..

Simply stunned. Words cannot describe the Make-a-Wish Charity Auction. I think it would be safe to say that this event surpassed the expectations of all involved. Held at the Patch Thibaud Auditorium on the Best of SL sims, more than 200 people attended the formal event, dressed in the most beautiful of gowns and formal wear. It is not often that we find ourselves surrounded by some of the most beautiful, innovative and creative individuals in SL, but today was one of those days. Top entrepreneurs, designers, and models strutted their stuff on stage for a good cause . . . granting the wish of a terminally ill child. Perhaps shockingly, the event raised nearly L$1,000,000 for the Make-a-Wish Foundation through a combination of auction bids and direct donations! The bidding was an eye opener for all in attendance. Super model and Miss Costa Rica 2008 Pup Witherspoon sold for a whopping L$235,000 to Eymerich Lane. Frolic Mills, owner of the BOSL, sold for L$110,000 to Raven Pennyfeather of House of RFyre and both HarMonica Aabye and Rawly Rousselot sold for L$100,000 each. Shorne Destiny won 4 of the auctionees and donated them back to next highest bidder for a total of L$63,000.

Below is the list of auctionees and the money raised:

Aleida Rhode – L$10,000
Boe Cortes – L$50,000

In addition to the auctionees, the assistance and support of many others was required to make this event a success.  A special thanks to Aldero Akami of KMADD Studio for assisting with the celebrity catalog;  RubyStarlight Writer, organizer of the Stylista Festival, for all of her hard work bringing together so many awesome designers, entertainers, builders and talented individuals for a great cause; Nicky Ree for donating the gowns for the Studio Red hostesses; Tylo Mabellon of Beefcake for the Make-a-Wish support pins you each received in your invitation pack; Tony Martel for stream donations and Rawly Rousselot for the beautiful stage and Nardya Rousselot for the gorgeous capsule for the auctionees.
