Wounded Warrior Bennefit Raises over 90,000 Lindens

On Sunday evening, July 28, Veterans Isle had their monthly Wounded Warrior Bennefit. The live music event was organized in part by Frets Nirvana, and took place from 5PM to 9PM SL time.

Tonight is our seventh in the series of Wounded Warriots monthly benefits we conduct each month in Second Life. So far we have sent almost $6000 to WWP this year! And tonight will be a great event So come on out and support.

PonDman Haalan started things off at 5PM. Next at 6 was Dexter Moore. At 7PM, Frets Nirvana himself took the stage and played his guitar to the cheers of the crowd. Last but hardly least was Ganjo Mokeev. Much of the time, the stage had a packed crowd with nearly fifty residents in the sim. Over time, the Lindens slowly added up in the two upside down helmet kiosks on either side of the stage. With a few extra in cash added as Ganjo was wrapping up, the total was 90, 430 Lindens.

"Folks every bit of what you donated tonight will go to Wounded Warriors," Frets told everyone, "Thank you very much for your support!" GJackie Winkler, a friend of Frets, told, "Last year these concerts gave Wounded Warriors over $12,000 US dollars. It is hoped over the year of 2013, it will be $13,000 US."
