Spotlight Interview – Castle Home & Garden

LIGHTS OF HOPE SIM SPONSOR

WE ARE DELIGHTED YOU CHOSE TO BECOME A 2018 SL CHRISTMAS EXPO SPONSOR! WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO GET INVOLVED WITH RELAY FOR LIFE OF SECOND LIFE AND THE EXPO?
I have been involved with Relay for Life since 2007, but started being a Team Captain in 2013. I was Captain of Team Strange Journeys for two years, then Henrietta Demina was Captain, then I took over again after she passed away. I have been involved because I want to fight for more monies for research and support to eradicate this disease (and support those who currently have it). I became involved with the Christmas Expo back in 2013 and have been here ever since! Ho Ho Ho! 🙂

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN SL? WAS THERE ANYTHING IN PARTICULAR THAT MADE YOU JOIN?
I have been in SL since 2007. I joined because of a Harry Potter roleplay! I roleplayed for many years and am now just getting back into it!

TELL US ABOUT YOUR EVENT? HOW DID YOU BECOME INVOLVED?
The Annual Castle, Home and Garden Contest is an annual event that supports the American Cancer Society. We have raised tens of thousands of US dollars for the American Cancer Society through our event! Basically, you sign up to do a build, showcase the build, and people vote on the builds through linden. The first place winner gets $L100,000 to their Relay for Life team! Two years ago we had over 100 merchants and 25 builders. We are hoping to have even more this year on our ten sims!! I got involved because I was like “Hmm, let’s show off a castle”. We took off from there!!

IF SOMEONE WAS LOOKING TO HELP OUT WITH YOUR EVENT, WHO WOULD THEY CONTACT? IS THERE A WEBSITE FOR MORE INFORMATION?
I would say they should sign up to be a builder or designer of a garden!

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU FOUND AN ELEPHANT IN YOUR BACK YARD?
I’d make Nuala come take it home. It’s hers.

WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU WATCHED ON TV AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO WATCH IT?
“Who Do You Think You Are”- it is a genealogy show, and I love studying history. Family history is so fascinating! How did you get here? What did your ancestors do to help you get to where you are?

WHAT ONE WORD WOULD YOUR FRIENDS USE TO DESCRIBE YOU?
Otterific!

DO YOU HAVE A SPACE AT EXPO? WHAT WOULD WE FIND THERE?
A poster about the CHG.

CAN YOU TELL US ONE INTERESTING THING ABOUT YOURSELF THAT WE WOULD NOT FIND IN YOUR PROFILE ?
