Relay 2012 is already history. What a great event has been! Hundreds of avatars meeting in one place to raise money and awareness for the fight against cancer is so amazing. It is a great honour to be part of this very special group of great people.
It was also a very successful weekend for the team. Our campsite which was built and designed by Jennylynn Capalini and Manfred Hancroft, with help from Francesca Alva and Neill McCullough, won the Inventive Creative Fundraising Award 1st Place! Isn’t that amazing? I still can’t believe it. A big thank you to our build team, you are awesome!
The weekend was also successful in terms of fundraising, we added quite a bit to our total, which as of this writing stands at L$581,155 ($2,325). Please note that kiosks and vendors will continue to accept donations until the Wrap-Up Party in August so this is not the final number yet and we can continue to raise money.
Since this is my last Captain’s Note of the season, I would like to thank you all for your support for Relay For Life and for our team. It has been a great privilege to be your Team Captain.
I would also like to thank a few people who deserve extra credit for what they did for the team:
Eilidh & Neill McCullough for helping me run the team
Jennylynn Capalini & Manfred Hancroft for building our award-winning campsite
Aianna Feruvial for organising the Literature for Life and Music for Life events in Alurel
Butter for organising our Tiny events
Alana Pyara/Pieni/Peippo for oganising the Dance Under The Sea
Inish Karu & the Community of Ocean Realms for raising money on our behalf at their St. Patrick’s Day Festival
Wildstar Beaumont, Francesca Alva, Eden and Amberlyssa Marie Bauerhoff for their support for the team throughout the season.
Thank you so much! *Hugs*
