What an exciting ride it has been!!! We have all come together and worked so hard. I would like to thank all those who have helped relay by donating lindens, making contributions to Convio, and attended events!!! Everything you do has meaning and is deeply appreciated!!
Since we last chatted on the blog:
Ms. Leia was so awesome and kind as to do her own Bid me Bald event - and raised 20K plus toward that effort! She was bald for 5 days!! YAY Leia!!
Then we had a smashing success at our Royal Ascot Day at the Races event! Thanks so much to the Duchess of Trikassi, Liz Wilner, The Wizard of Trikassi, Lady Oriella Charik, and the Countess of Edgewood, Lady Cassie Eldemar. There are soo many others to thank for all their time - Sir DJ Gerrard Winstanley, Lady Petlove, the riders who all rode in the races, Lady Beth Ghostraven for helping us to advertise, and Sir Linn Darkwatch for being our track manager. Thanks to all for making this a wonderful experience for all - we had such a good time -and raised over 44K for this one event! The weekend ended up with Olde in the Dunk tank and Lady Habibah Zambia winning a costume party - total for the weekend was over 46K!
This past weekend with Swashbucklers For Life was soo busy I was very remiss in putting addtions on our blog! So sorry about that - but everything was so exciting and soo busy - there was no time! The Tall Ships Race Trophy was won by Ms. Kirsten Blackheart of the Tradewinds Pirates. Thanks Marcel Ghostraven for such a fantastic trophy! Great race - thanks Admiral Beaumont!! The Privateer's Ball is the last ball of SFL and it was one to be remembered!!! Thanks so much DJ Magz!! It was a great ball and is always so exciting to have it on the ships!! Thank you to all who were soo much help during that busy time! It was truly all about teamwork! One or two people cannot do this on their own. AND for our matching funds - goodness - everyone worked so hard so we could get to Sapphire! Thank you so very much Ms. Magz!! *hugs* from all of us!! Total for the weekend over 100K!!
If we put our noses to the grindstone and our hands and paws together - nothing can stop us!!! And as Ms. Magz so aptly stated....Our team is tiny yet mighty, small yet forceful, diverse yet united, frolicking yet determined! We are ACTS! We are Relay! We have already accomplished a convio challenge worth 10K for Relay Weekend! Remember you can dedicate a luminaria on the track and the money goes toward our team - use your sl name in the message. Call me if you have any questions.
