The event will feature DJs, ice-skating, refreshments, dancing and much more. A silent auction supporting Child’s Play Charity will be held and hopefully new records will be set this year.

Here is the full press release below…

BAY CITY, SL (2 December, 2021) -The Bay City Alliance will host its annual Tree Lighting event on Sunday, Saturday, 8th December 2019 from 1-4 pm SLT at the Bay City Fairgrounds, in North Channel ( http://slurl.com/secondlife/North%20Channel/128/128/24/ ). The event will feature DJ GoSpeed of KONA Stream and live performances by Tamra Hayden and FrankLee Anatra. There will be much merry-making,  ice-skating, dancing, refreshments and lots of fun for all!

As part of the event, a silent auction supporting Child’s Play Charity (www.childsplaycharity.org) will be held. At our 2020 event, we raised L$135,994, and hope to break that in 2021

Confirmed designers, artists, and brands participating in the event include GenusProject, Diana Takeda (of Meshbody), Cica Ghost, Lunar Tripsa, Owen Lusch (of Lusch Motors), Brick Swansen, Late Billig (of Junk Food), Cindy Henusaki, Javatar Mocha, Plato Novo, Bryn Oh, Trinity Yazamoto, Vinsie Bunny, LadyJane Shippe (of Shippe & Saille), and OldManChristmas.
DeeDee Dakota will also be offering a parcel in Bay City – Falconmoon!

Additional Second Life™ designers and artists who wish to participate by providing fun, interesting, unique, or other transferrable items (or a no-copy object that the auction winner can give to you to redeem their prize, if the item(s) have to be no transfer) may contact ThomasHooker Resident to participate.

Auction will end at the conclusion of the event. All proceeds from the silent auction and from donation bins at the venue will go to Child’s Play Charity. Child’s Play is a 501c3 non profit organization offers online communities such as ours an opportunity to help seriously ill children around the globe during their hospital stays with the purchase of games and gaming equipment.

Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab® and home to the Bay City Alliance. The Bay City Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote the Bay City regions of Second Life and provide a venue for Bay City Residents and other interested parties to socialize and network. It is now the largest group for Residents of Bay City.

Please spread the word to everyone you know in Second Life. Thanks! 🙂
