2015 SL Christmas Expo – A Frozen Christmas – December 3 – 14, 2015

 

A Frozen Christmas - SL Christmas Expo 2015

The Second Life Christmas Expo will be celebrating its fifth year as one of Second Life’s largest holiday events!  The dates of the Christmas Expo will be December 3 to December 14, so mark your calendars!  This years theme is A Frozen Christmas and we can’t wait for you to visit!

The 2015 Second Life Christmas Expo is a mega event that raises funds for Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL). 100% of registration fees, sponsorship fees, kiosk donations, hunt, raffle, auction, and vendor exclusive items are paid to RFL of SL. Relay For Life of Second Life is part of the American Cancer Society and is a virtual version of the real life Relay For Life. You can find more information about RFL of SL here:  http://relayforlifeofsecondlife.org/ .

The 2015 Second Life Christmas Expo  will consist of both holiday and non holiday items from some of the best creators and designers in Second Life!

There are a couple changes this year as well with the SL Christmas Expo.  The large Breedable Fair is moving and will be held in conjunction with the Home & Garden Expo in support of the RFL of SL.  But that does not mean we will not have breedables at the SL Christmas Expo.  We sure will!   Just on a smaller scale. There will still be some very wonderful Limited Edition (LE) breedables available along with the other breedables and accessories.  Who knows, we may even hold an auction or two, or just maybe Santa will bring us a OOAK Breedable in one of the stores!

The other change at the SL Christmas Expo mega event will be that every item offered for sale in the Expo shops will be in a Relay For Life Vendor.  Merchants now have the opportunity to further show their support to finish the fight against cancer by choosing whether 50%,75% or 100% of the item(s) in the vendor is donated to RFL of SL and the American Cancer Society.  We have heard from many past Expo merchants and they are pleased with this change and are looking forward to showing their support!  How exciting is that!

The 2015 Second Life Christmas Expo Coordinator will be Nuala Maracas, no stranger to Relay, having been the Event Co-Chair in 2009 & 2010, and most recently the Events Coordinator for RFL of SL 2015.  The 2015 Second Life Christmas Expo Co-Coordinator will be announced very soon.

We will offer a return of some of your favorite Expo events, with a mix of new and exciting events, programs, and of course fun!

In the coming days and weeks, we will be posting information about merchant and sponsorship registration, blogger and volunteer applications, performer applications and events at the Expo. Please subscribe to this blog for updates.
