"Golden Nights For Peace" Charity Event

There's been an ongoing series of fundraising events for refugee relief charities, the "Golden Nights for Peace." They have been taking place high above the Paradise Isle sim.


My name is Shantal Gravois, the reigning Miss Virtual World 2018.

 It is my pleasure to  invite you to participate and support a  great cause that is close and dear and my heart.

Years ago I personally had to flee from my native Nicaragua in the middle of a war, where my family and I had many difficult stories.  I have known from the age of 6 what it means to have a gun pointed to your head.  Such a traumatic event for such a small child;  however with the efforts of my parents, we were able to travel to different countries until we were able to call one home.

Today, my people, the  Nicaraguans and Venezuelans, are still living the tragedy and trying to flee from the tyranny of selfish beings to save their lives. This is the reason why I bring to you this event:

                                               "GOLDEN NIGHTS FOR PEACE"
This event will combine fashion, competitions, shopping, and goodwill within during the Christmas Season, to raise funds for the immigrants of the genocidal dictatorships in Nicaragua and Venezuela.

We want to help 4 different organizations in view that the immigrants will be able to go to different countries and obtain  aid. As an example the people of Nicaragua are migrating specifically to Costa Rica

*Amigos of Costa Rica
*SOS Nicaragua

*Jesuit Refugee Service

*Collection Centers for Venezuelans


The main event was December 15, but there are two more events, Saturday December 22 at 10AM, and the closing concert and party on Sunday December 23. Golden Nights for Peace is sponsored in part by "Best of Second Life" magazine, which was founded by Frolic Mills, whom is Venezuelan in real life.
