Hope Haven Heroes Presents Visions of Hope: Silent Auction Benefit for RFL- Opening Party May 3rd, 2015

"Ziki Questi, Tomais Ashdene, Em Larsson, Hills, Trinity Yazimoto, Boudicca Amat, Pusher, Bijou, Morgan Kincess, Dru G. Eiren-Milneaux and other great photographers and visual artists are joining forces on behalf of Relay For Life of SL. Some of their original and unique works will be part of Visions of Hope, a silent auction starting on May 3rd* (please, check the note below). Yes, that's it, an auction with some of the most renowned photograph artists in Second Life - and you can take one of them, or more, home with you (I mean their work, of course). All the money raised with the activity will go to RFL of SL, which helps gather funds for the American Cancer Society's programs to improve cancer survival, decrease the incidence of cancer and improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their caretakers.

Visions of Hope will be held at Hope Haven Heroes Gallery ( - 􀀂) during the whole month of May. DJ Cupric will be responsible for the tunes during the opening party, on May 3rd, at 1 PM SLT, and everyone is invited to join.

For the auction, one just has to click on the title boards and make an offer. The minimum bid is just L$ 400 and the amounts can be increased by at least L$ 100 each time. At the end of May, we will learn who acquired what.

So, if you'd like to check the works of some amazing photographers in SL, and maybe acquire some of them and help the efforts of Relay For Life of SL, go visit Hope Haven Heroes Gallery during this May, and join us for the opening party.

Visions of Hope is hosted by Hope Haven Heroes. Hope Haven is where the survivors and caregivers support groups meet. Hope Haven Heroes is the RFL of SL team that represents it (more info on Hope Haven support groups at the gallery).

*Note: The official opening is set to May 3rd, but there will be a soft opening on May 1st for the press and for those who would like to visit the gallery before the auction starts.
