Joint RFL Team Event Raises Over 42,000 Lindens

On Saturday April 20, the Relay for Life teams Sunbeamers and Meli's Maniacs held a joint event at the Happy Vixen beach club in Purrfection Estates. For six hours, three DJs, DJ Geerkil, DJ Snowbuns, and DJ Tech, played for the crowd as Lindens were donated into two RFL kiosks, one for each team. The theme was Purple, so every two hours people voted on who had the best purple avatar and/or outfit. A number of other Relayers showed up, including four members of the Roos With a Dream team whom danced away in kangaroo avatars.

At the end of the event, Meli's Maniacs had raised 14,665 Linden dollars, bringing their total to 70,451 Lindens. Team Sunbeamers raised 27,599 Linden dollars, bringing their total this year to 181,500. The event raised a total of 42,254 Linden dollars (about $168 USD).

The Sunbeamers/Meli's Maniacs combined RFL event yesterday was a success. The Sunbeamers raised over 27.000 Lindens, and the Maniacs over 14,000, with a combined total of over 42.000 Linden dollars. Thank you those who helped run the event, and those who donated.

This wasn't the only fundraiser done by Team Sunbeamers recently. Team Captain Rita Mariner's "Bid Me Chipmunk" netted the team about 4000 Linden dollars. The catch was that Rita is stuck in an anthro chipmunk avatar for a week, which has led to a few "Captain Chipmunk" jokes, due to that and the name she uses while gaming online sometimes.

In the meantime, the Relay goes on, with the big event at the moment being the Fantasy Faire. For now rather than have big events, the "'beamers" will enjoy themselves at the Faire and wait for the Lindens to fix the "TP crash" bug before coming up with something new. But later on in May, "The Little Team That Could" will come up with something to get to Platinum Level. It's just a question of what.

Go Relay!
