On behalf of the board of Second Pride, I would like to extend a HUGE thank you all the designers, entertainers and patrons who came to and participated in Fashion Pride, a benefit for ACT (Aids Committee of Toronto). This wonderful event raised L$119,652 through sales of exclusive items and direct donations.
There are many thanks to be given. First off Merrick Genesis for organizing and kicking off this event. It would never have happened without him. World Undercroft and his team for working with Merrick and helping with some of the building. Thank you to Zib Skaggs of Zibska, and Kip Ashbourne and Chaz Longstaff of Blue Balls for their generous sponsorship of events and providing gifts. A real big thank you to Marcus Lefevre of Master S&M Estates and RGF Estates for the very generous donation of the sim for this event. Thanks to Regi Yifu for supplying the store buildings.
This was a great fashion event with amazing contributions from a wide variety of designers (the full list is here). They contributed time and donated items that were sold exclusively to benefit ACT and any great fashion event has runway events. This week saw 2 great runway events. First one was the Babylon Fashion Show (video can bee seen here), organized and produced by October Bettencourt. The second show featured the men of Le Garcons, a big thank you to Erik Bayn, Lex Demonista, and Apollo Call for putting together this event.
Thank you to DJ Regi Yifu, Esme Capelo and SL Live Radio, DJ JohnyA, DJ Kaj and Tamra Sands for providing us with great entertainment throughout the week.
And finally the SP team who stepped in to assist where needed when things became a little crazy. Thank you Andy Long, Sutry and the security team, Jak Calcutt, Marge Beaumont and Karl Kalchek.
An event of this size takes alot of effort by a great deal of people to pull off, I hope that I haven’t forgotten anyone. The great work of everyone is appreciated.
