• How will the Runway For Life auction work ? 

To make sure that everything is going smoothly, we decided to select an auction script with several features we, and the American Cancer Society, agree with:

a) The auction script will NOT receive any kind of money!

b) The auction script will NOT deliver any product!

c) The auction script WILL display the names of the persons participating as well as the L$ amount of the highest bid

d) The auction script will be implemented in a simple prim box presenting the commercial poster of the product with a hovertext. The hovertext will describe precisely the name of the product, invite people to place bids by touching the prim box and display both the name of the highest bidder and the L$ amount of the highest bid.

e) On a simple click, the box will whisper (green text) to the participants to bid on a private channel, the channel number is generated automatically by the script so nobody will have the same and it will avoid confusion when placing bids

f) The auction lasts 48 hours, starting at 1.00 PM SLT on Friday, May 13th to Sunday, May 15th at 1.00 PM SLT

g) At 3.00 PM SLT on Sunday, all auction scripts will go offline (done manually by a GIA Staff Member)

h) Within 24 hours following the end of the auction, the winners of the auctioned desgins will be required to pay the correct L$ amount to an official, accredited RFL Kiosk raising funds for the team, GLANCE Runway For Life Team #40. The L$ amount must be the exact sum placed by the winning bidder. This is done to ensure 100% of the L$ will go to the accredited American Cancer Society account in Second Life(tm).

i) The fashion designers will be contacted upon receipt and confirmation of the payment and will be given information on how to contact and deliver the product to the winning participant.

j) The winners will then be contacted by GIA Staff Members to rehearse, take the pose and walk the runway on the hugely popular fashion TV Shows: Catwalk TV and Homme Style TV.

k)  On Monday, May 16th, the winners will be contacted. The sole winner of the auction is the person with the highest bid by auction close. Once contacted, he/she will decide if his/her name is made public and if he or someone else will introduce the winning design on the Catwalk TV or Homme Style TV special RFL of SL 2011 editions.

GLANCE Runway For Life Captain, Co-captain and leading volunteers are assured to work as a liaison between the fashion designers and the winners of the auctions to guarantee product delivery and to insure adherence to the process described above.

Should you have any questions or concerns please speak with one of our staff and we will be happy to assist you.
