Governor Linden announced today the team lineups for the 6th Annual Bid The Lindens Bald (BTLB) fundraiser, sponsored by the Relay Rockers in support of the Relay For Life of Second Life.  The challenge takes part during RelayStock, the annual weekend gathering of Relay Teams for 3 Days of Peace Music and Hope, to be held May 13, 14 & 15.

Bid The Lindens Bald challenges the different Linden teams to raise as much as possible in support of the American Cancer Society.  The team raising the Most Linden$ during the week of May 12 through the 19th will be awarded a pair of scissors with which they will shave the heads of the team raising the least amount of Linden$. Last year the Linden and Mole teams combined to raise L$840,639, or $3361, raising the event’s all-time total to more than L$3.5 million and helping the virtual Relay held in Second Life since 2005, to be ranked 4th largest, out of more than 1600 Relay communities in the United States, with an astounding total raised of more than L$100,000,000 in 2021.

RelayStock, which is in its 9th season opens on May 13th with Live and DJ entertainment through Sunday evening May 15th.

The original Bid Me Bald event was created by the Relay Rockers in 2007 as both a fundraiser and a show of solidarity with cancer survivors. Bid Me Bald recognizes with respect and support that chemotherapy and other lifesaving treatments can lead to side effects, notably hair loss.  Bid Me Bald participants choose to ‘shave’ their heads as an act of support and fellowship with our honored heroes.

MUD MUSIC & HOPE: RelayStock Returns For 8th Year!

 


MUD MUSIC & HOPE: RelayStock Returns For 8th Year!
Moles Join Lindens for Bid The Lindens Bald 


The Relay Rockers announced the return for the 8th year of its much anticipated multi-team Relay For Life event RelayStock, May 14 – 16.  RelayStock brings together Relay teams from diverse communities across Second Life for a celebration of the Relay season.  Teams raise their banners above makeshift tents and old VW campers as they gather for 3 days of Peace Love Music and Hope. Joining the Rockers for the 5th year, Linden Lab will be participating in Bid The Lindens Bald to support the American Cancer Society and its signature fundraiser, Relay For Life of Second Life.



Teams can sign up online at RelayRockers.org beginning April 11th. Teams can choose a team site and book stage time blocks.  Each participating team can place kiosks, RFL vendors, and Gotchas at their site as part of their fundraising efforts on behalf of the ACS. “RelayStock is not only a fundraiser, although last year we raised nearly L$1.2 million with various teams collecting more than L$750,000 towards their season goals'' said Arizona Ballinger, who organizes the event for the Relay Rockers.“ it’s a well needed break in the Relay Season and allows volunteers to spend time with each other, share stories and ideas and get ready for the last push toward Relay Weekend in June.”

In addition to team events on the stage, RelayStock once again will host the Finals of the Celebrate Remember Fight-Back Top DJ Fundraising Competition. The CRFB event features Club and Radio DJs from all over Second Life as they try to see who among them can raise the most Linden$ in support of the Relay For Life. In 2020 the two finalists, DJ Baggie and DJ Kayla raised more than L$330,000 during their final sets with DJ Kayla taking home top Honors.

The last and perhaps most popular event at RelayStock is the annual Bid The Lindens Bald (BTLB21) challenge. This year the Moles will join in as Teams of Lindens  challenge each other to raise as much as they can and “Save Their Hair,” with the team with the lowest total pledging to go bald in Second Life until the annual SL Birthday event. BTLB Began in 2017 and has helped to raise more than L$ 3,000,000.   "Every year, I look forward to the Rockers' Bid Me Bald fundraiser” said Stingray Raymaker, American Cancer Society representative in Second Life, “This is one of the longest-running team fundraisers in our Relay's history and it has become a touchstone moment for so many of us. I have enjoyed watching the event grow and evolve over the years and am grateful to the Lindens for getting into the spirit of this time-tested fundraising challenge."

Final bidding and Official Haircutting will take place Wednesday, May 19th beginning at 12 noon.
