BoobieThon 2012 - Week in Review Part II


$841.72 USD

This is the continuation of the review of the first week of our 2012 BoobieThon.

On Saturday afternoon, October 6th, there were some very fun & creative events.  The first was the En Garde Tournament held at the Prop Spinners Flight Deck and hosted by Miss Stereo Nacht.
Miss Nacht develped the tournament with a mind to fun and fund-raising - registration fees split between the winner and the BoobieThon donation kiosk, strip play, and creative awards.
A wonderful time was had by all participants.

Later that evening, Miss Zanya hosted a lingerie event at the Charity Way with music provided by DJ Piper Steampunk.

 I was unable to attend either of these events due to real life commitments and am hoping that someone captured some photographs that they would be willing to share with the readers of this journal.

Sunday, October 7th found the Chess Garden in Winterfell filled with activity. BoobieThon Chess Tournament! Six hardy players sat down to the chess boards at the beginning of the tournament as onlookers filed into the gallery.  It was a lovely event.  I believe it may have even inspired several of us to dust off our chess pieces at home and prepare for next year!!  :)

Later in the evening, Co-Chairs, Rowan Derryth and PJ Trenton, opened the 3rd Annual BoobieThon Art Auction at RoHaus Gallery in Magna Carta.  The event was well attended and the bids are already beginning to soar for many of the fabulous original & limited edition art pieces.  The last bid will be taken on October 12th!  Please don't miss your chance to own one or more of these fantastic pieces - and support the Feel Your Boobies Foundation while you are at it.

Finally - we must mention that Scout Danger has done a remarkable job of coordinating, maintaining, and managing the BoobieThon Vendor Faire in Winterfell.

For the first week, the Second Life login page featured BoobieThon and this vendor faire location specifically.  Thankfully that increased the traffic to the area for sales and education about the work of the Feel Your Boobies Foundation.

What a wonderful week it has been thanks to our generous donors, hosts, vendors, and artists!

BoobieThon has been quite fortunate to have the opportunity to work with so many wonderful people from all over the globe.  This year, as you may recall, we have expanded the 'thon to two weeks for a variety of reasons.  This has offered us the chance to expand the number of events and locations - sometimes quite spontaneously!

Thus far the events have been as follows:

Opening Night in the Garden of the Fæ - Hosted by Eva Bellambi with music from Icarus Ghost

Otenth Paderborn generously added BoobieThon to his normal Terpsicore Tuesday event on Day 2 of the BoobieThon.  We are so grateful for this spontaneous event and the generosity and caring of those in attendence.

On Wednsday, Magdalena Kamenev hosted and provided music for Salome's Dance at the Blue Mermaid in Caledon on Sea.  What a fantastic night it was!  Everyone in attendance was in great spirits and many shared stories about how breast cancer has effected their lives.

Thanks to PJ Trenton for the photographs. PJ's BoobieThon Album is here.

On Thursday evening, the Poetry Slam at der Hut held a breast-themed night.  It was great fun according to all in attendance and it helped push the dollars-raised up even higher.

Friday was a busy evening which began with the placement of the Venus di Milo from last year's art auction at the Consulate gardens in New Toulouse. Music provided by Radio Riel

Baron Klaus Wulfenbach and Art Auction Co-Chair Rowan Derryth

The party then moved to the Steelhead Ballroom where we all celebrated life in shades of pink.  Over $75,000L were raised at this particular event!!  Many thanks to Lunar, Tensai, and Fuzzball for hosting and providing the music.

Part II update will include the Saturday and Sunday events ending week 1 of BoobieThon 2012.
