RFL Home and Garden Expo Is Open
The 2016 Relay for Life Hope and Garden Expo is taking place now in Second Life. The Expo actually started on Sunday February 14th, though many missed hearing about it with so much else that was going on, it being Valentines Day. As the name implies, there's a large selection of products for homes and yards available for purchase, with a share of the profits going to the Relay for Life.
There are ten temporary sims east of the American Cancer Society island available for shopping and other activities (screenshot of the map was taken at night so there would be fewer green dots). There's a variety of stores to shop in, including gachas.
According to the Expo blog, "Expo exhibitors are required to have two 100% donation items at the Expo. These items must be new and exclusive to the Expo for the duration of the event. 100% of registration fees, sponsorship fees and donation items are paid to Relay For Life of Second Life. Gachas are a new opportunity to the Expo this year, and 50% of the proceeds from these will be paid to RFL." One can check the blog for more information at: https://slhomeandgardenexpo.wordpress.com/ There's also a shopping guide available (here).
There will be some events at the Expo. Today at 4PM for instance will be the Lantern release from the theater roofs. Prim Perfect will also be holding events over the next several days. One can read the schedule of events here: https://slhomeandgardenexpo.wordpress.com/events-at-expo/ The Expo will go on until Sunday March 6.

The Relay for Life in Second Life is Second Life's largest and most successful charity organization, raising funds for the American Cancer Society.
