American Cancer Society Benefit Season Kick-Off on Callidora

On Saturday, the 17th of October the owners of Callidora SIM in second life will kick off their annual benefit season for the American Cancer Society. A month ago, I wrote an article that appeared in the SL Newspaper about the brother and sister team, msw Tomorrow and Renfew Sperber, who are active in the annual "Relay for Life" as well as in raising money for the ACS. Ms Sperber sent me the line-up for the event on the 17th along with an e-mail where she told me that the donations were already coming in. Besides the information on the event concert she'd also told me, "that we've dedicated the two most popular rides at the Kleio Island Amusement Park to the ACS, the Spook House and the Alice House, by Atom Burma who is an incredible ride designer".  Kleio Island is adjacent to Callidora.

When: Saturday, October 17th from 2 pm PDT/SLT to 8 pm PDT/SLT

Thank you for your attendance and support last year and this year. Together we were able to exceed all expectations last year.

Please IM Renfew Sperber or msw Tomorrow with any questions. Looking forward to seeing you all on the 17th.
