Press Release: Registration Open for Making Strides "Treasure The Chests" Shopping Event

Ahoy mateys!

Calling all buccaneers and wenches! Here’s a way you can support a good cause, raise funds for breast cancer research and have fun at the same time.

Registrations are now being accepted for the “Treasure the Chests” shopping event that will run from Oct. 1 to Oct. 31.

The event is sponsored by Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Across Second Life.

If you have any type of business, service or sell anything, this is a shopping event for you! There’s no requirements for items unique to the event; no special vendors to set up.

There are a variety of shop sizes to choose from -- something for every budget. The shopping sim will have a Pirate/Old World theme, but don’t let that stop you! All are welcome to join us.

All businesses in Second Life are welcome to participate in this truly unique event. From designers to breedables to SL experiences, there’s a place for everyone at the Treasure the Chests shopping event.

Benefits of sponsorship are highlighted on this google document you can access.

If you are unable to do sponsorship at this time but would like to participate, contact us and allow us to help you find a way to be involved that fits your needs.

We can help get your name and logo seen by THOUSANDS of people across the grid and web through our website and Facebook! All you need to do is click the link above to join or contact Leala Spire, or Sandie Loxingly for more information.
