It's a weekend of Peace Love and Hope, Great Music and yes, lots of MUD! Once again The Relay Rockers invite everyone to join them on May 21 and 22th at Relay dAlliez, for RelayStock 2016, a multi team Relay For Life of Second Life event.
The event will feature 'Team Sites' around a 60s style festival stage. Teams are invited to bring Kiosks and Vendors, host 2 hour DJ segments on the stage and participate in one the most popular events of each relay year, the Final Round of the Relay Rocker's Celebrate Remember Fight Back Top DJ Competition. The Rockers anticipate room for about 60 teams this season, so don't wait to reserve a spot!
"The Relay Rockers have been fortunate to have participants from many teams in our CRFB Event" said Rockers Co-Founder Trader Whiplash. "RelayStock is our way of saying thank you for the huge support across the grid for the competition. It affords every team the opportunity to share in a super fund raising event. This is just another example of the One Team concept in Relay. It doesn’t matter whose kiosk or vendor the donations land in, after all we are all on the same team in the end."
Trader noted that in 2014, the original RelayStock event raised more than L$ 1.5 million and more than 50 teams participated. The event will be held at Relay dAlliez. Relay dAlliez is dedicated to the memory of Alliez Mysterio, who with Nuala Maracas and Trader Whiplash, helped found the Relay Rockers team in 2005. Alliez was lost to breast cancer in 2013. The sim was first made available in 2014 to any team to hold Relay For Life events. There are still several prime weekend dates open. Team representatives can visit the Relay dAlliez InfoHub for more information and to submit a reservation request.
Bid Me Bald, the Relay Rockers Signature Fundraising event in support of the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Second Life, returns for a 9th year!
The event which pairs Relay Volunteers with a Barber Chair and a Pair of Scissors has been a mainstay event for the Rockers since 2007 and has been used by other teams across Relay For Life of Second Life.
In 2007 when Relay Rocker's co-founder Trader Whiplash was undergoing Chemotherapy for leukemia the Rockers offered to shave their heads in SL in support of him. Instead the team decided to make it a fund raiser and to support and honor EVERY survivor who has borne the side effects of cancer treatments.
Volunteers make an appointment with the Rockers Barbershop and place a special kiosk out. For each L$5000 raises they agree to go bald for 1 full day. Totals are rounded up and the average donation is about L$25,000.
Bid Me Bald recognizes, with honor and respect, those for whom the choice was made, not by themselves, but by chemotherapy and other cancer treatments. We have the choice and we choose to sacrifice our hair to honor these Survivors and to help the American Cancer Society find ways to fight cancer, support survivors and their caregivers and help us all celebrate more birthdays.
