As it turns out, the NBCF portal no longer accepts Paypal we found out – a change that happened during the month of October. So, we will have to make that final $1975.03 donation in two pieces as we move it to a credit card to make the payment. Once each donation payment clears on the credit card, the next one will be made. Here is the receipt for donation #2.
So that leaves $1000 to still be donated just as soon as the payment on the credit card clears. Keep watching here!
Rock Your Rack 2016 is now officially over! As you can see from above we had a very very successful year! Remember this is the SECOND donation amount for the event. So that $558885L you see above is added to the $187086L we already donated back at the beginning of the event. So grand total lindens raised this year was $745791L – the most we have ever raised in Rock Your Rack event! That translates to $660 USD for the FIRST donation that was already made and $1975 USD for the SECOND donation already in process as you can see below for a grand total of $2635 USD that will be donated to the online portal for the National Breast Cancer Foundation when it is all said and done. As always, the receipt for the second donation will be posted here next week when the funds clear SecondLife into Paypal. Keep watching this space for a special thank you to all involved in the event – coming very soon.
But first we want to mention a few very special partners who helped raise those funds and were not involved specifically in the RYR event Sim –
Club Evolution raised $21,050L for $81.36 USD
Cirque De L’Amour Event raised $48,883L for $188.41 USD
Tango’s raised $76,000L for $292.71 USD in honor of Peggysue Short and her battle with this vicious disease – go Peg! We are with you!
The actual donation receipt will follow in about one week! Stay Tuned!
We have had two weeks of amazing music at Rock Your Rack 2016 and it all came to a close last night with our U2 tribute concert presented by the Hiess Project. What a powerful show – hard rocking, all your favorites and the band was spot on. Nothing but the best – high quality audio, and realistic band looks from a team that takes their music seriously to present only the best there is. It not only sounded amazing, but looked amazing as well on the Rock Your Rack concert stage built by Brad Tylman. He was there running the light show as he did all the way though the event. I hope you didn’t miss out! If you did, then you will have to wait for Rock Your Rack 2017 where we hope to have this amazing combination back once again for the cause! Thank you to both the Hiess Project Team and Brad Tylman for making Rock Your Rack 2016 ROCK!
