Announcements: 14th Annual RFL of SL Kick Off Celebration

The following is from announcements from the Relay for Life in Second Life yesterday

*  *  *  *  *

Come ONE, Come ALL!! to the 14th annual RFL of SL Kick Off Celebration!!  We're geared up, fired up, teamed up, UNITED up and ready to get to Relaying!  Thank you to those who volunteered for the task of kick off planning,  Jesie Janick and Trader Whiplash.  Thank you to the Kick Off regions designer, Eclair Martinek.

            !!!  CHEERS TO OUR SPONSOR!!!
Much appreciation goes to this year's Kick Off Sponsor: Relay Refresh!

What... Who is Relay Refresh?  They are just a couple of seasoned Second Life souls taking on a fun project telling stories about Relay For Life and spotlighting the people who make it happen.

In Second Life, even the newest avatar quickly discovers that Relay for Life is a big deal. Hundreds and hundreds of avatars volunteering their time year after year and raising well over 3 million real life dollars during the last ten years.

And behind every one of those amazing avatars is an equally amazing real life person with a story that motivates them

to give their time to Relay for Life.  Read their stories at Relay Refresh!

Check it out  on the website: and on Facebook!

                     !!! VIEWING PARTIES !!!

If you would rather watch the Kick Off Ceremony from your own venue or home, why not host a Live Viewing Party?!

YouTube Viewing Screens will be sent out before the ceremony begins via the Volunteers and Info Only groups.  There will also be a box in the Relay Center on ACS Island. The box will include a viewing screen and instructions on how to show them from your own location, LIVE!

Thank you to Luke Flywalker for providing LIVE youtube coverage for the Viewing Parties!


Landmarks will be sent out in the very near future.  Remember to get there early, we do expect the region to fill up.  You will be able to hear and cam over from ACS Island so if the main Kick Off region is full, you can go there.  Also, please consider wearing low lag items..  meaning clothing and hair with few or no scripts in them.

Since there is a performance/animations part to the ceremony here is a bit of information on how you can tweak your viewer for optimal viewing.

That's it!  This is the official end to your Relay Kick Off Weekend Celebration Invitation. ..  for now

We're excited to see you ALL at Kick Off.  We're about to get this Party Started!!
