Haunted Isle: A chilling addition to Blossoms of Hope Showcase!

haunted-house_001

With chills and thrills around every turn, the haunted isle by Peirce Designs at the 2016 Blossoms of Hope Showcase is something that shouldn’t be missed! It’s a multi-sensory trip into the macabre world of ghost, ghouls and things that go bump in the night.

Sponsor spotlight: d’Alliez Estates

dalliez-estates
A longtime supporter of Relay For Life of Second Life, d’Alliez Estates is a Diamond Sim sponsor for this year’s Blossoms of Hope Showcase.

The Estates are also gracious enough to host the Showcase this year. Estates owner Sue Peregrine took time out of her busy schedule to talk with us.

Question: What lead to your becoming a sponsor this year?
Answer: dAlliez Estates has supported Relay for Life and all of the various events since the very beginning.

Q: Tell us what inspires you.
A: My real life mother. She passed away in 2013 from undiagnosed breast cancer.

Q: How do you keep up with the latest trends in Second Life?
A: Interaction with my staff, renters, other landlords, blog, Linden Lab postings. Anything I can read 🙂

Q: How have any major changes in second life affected your business?
A: The region buy down offer this year has really hurt. Linden Lab had an offer for about 6 months where a region owner could buy it down from newer tier of $295/month to grandfathered tier of $195/month. They are now renting them out for much less than I can, so I have had renters leave. But also have not priced correctly. They’re not accounting for all of the expenses that go into running an estate. I fear many renters will see their homes *poof* overnight if they are not careful.

Q: Any advice to any other budding business owners in second life?
A: Start slow, know your market. Advertise as much as you can.

Q: What is something we can look forward to in 2017 from you?
A: Continued great support for our renters and as lag free as possible regions! I’m also hoping we can recreate the lag free and region crash free Relay we had this year!

Everyone is welcome!  One lap or as many as you can, Sign up! Help us take Strides Against Breast Cancer in SL!

We would like the walkers to reach out to their friends in SL and if you like real life to get sponsors for your walk.   The sponsors would agree that for every lap you walk they will pay a certain amount  to you as a donation. An example of how to request sponsorships will be given to each registered walker.

The more sponsors you have the more you can raise for MSABC!! Special awards will be given to top fundraisers.

After the walk we will send you a notecard with all your sponsors and how much they sponsored you for and what they owe.  You can set up a kiosk at your home and tp each to pay or you can go to them and rezz a kiosk for them to pay.   For your personal protection we ask that you post besides each of their names their payment to the kiosk from your transaction history.   Once you have collected all your funds we ask you return a copy of your card to Leala Spire or Sandie Loxingly by Nov. 4th.

Awards will then be given out at Wrap up on Nov. 5th.

If you have any questions, please contact Leala or Sandie.
