Homes For Our Troops Charity Event Raises over 100,000 Lindens
Sunday October 25 was the monthly benefit concert at Veterans Isle. For four hours from 5PM to about 9PM SL time (Midnight EST), Frets Nirvana and three other musicians performed for the crowd as they listened and sometimes danced to the music.
Tonight, Sunday October 2015 is our monthly benefit concert for Homes For Our Troops. Scheduled for 5-9 Pm SLT, come join us and kick out the Halloween goblins by supporting our severely wounded veterans. They make the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, let's support them!
Besides Frets Nirvana, Veronica Weksler, Shannon Oherlihy, and Tristen Homewood also performed. The musicians did not put out tip jars. Instead, all cash donated to the two house-shaped kiosks on either side of the stage went to the charity Homes For Our Troops. On occasion, Frets Nirvana would challenge the audience, saying he'd match the next high donation made by someone.
The total collected was 101,250 Linden Dollars.
