Yesterday's fundraising event for Team Sunbeamers at the Happy Vixen was a success. The small but enthusiastic crowd donated to not just the Sunbeamer kiosk, but also one for Team ACTS whom was also there. They also donated to the kiosk for DJ Mattie's (Mattie Carlton/Mattie Foxglove) "Bid Mattie Pink."
Despite some recent personal tragedy, DJ Mattie performed for the crowd with a set of tunes, such as "We Belong To Each Other" by Garth Brookes, "You've Got To Stand For Something" by Aaron Tippin, Clay Aiken's "Bridge Over Troubled Water," "Braid My Hair" by Randy Owen, "Angels Among Us," and Zach Sobiech's "Clouds."
And we'll go up, up, up
But I'll fly a little higher
Go up in the clouds because the view's a little nicer
Up Here, My Dear
It won't be long now,
It won't be long now
I had a little bit more time
I had a little bit more time with you
By the end of Mattie's two hours, 2737 had been donated to both kiosks, with 2750 Lindens in the "Bid Me" kiosks, for a total of 5487 Linden dollars. But in Scratch Musikatt's set afterwards, with tributes to Memorial Day weekend, people continued to donate to the kiosks. 5150L would be donated, including one 5000L donation! This made for a total that night of 10,637 Linden dollars raised, 9,426L which went to Team Sunbeamers.
The kiosks for "Bid Mattie Pink" will be up at the Happy Vixen until Saturday June 4.
Counting donations from outside Second Life, as of the writing of this article, the Sumbeamers had made 675,552 Linden dollars, and closing in on Sapphire rank fundraising. They have another chance today as the team has it's Medieval Fest in Caledon Downs.
Go Sunbeamers! Go Relay!
