The VBA Partners with SLCS “Sports Expo” !

27 May

Sunday, May 22, 2011

The SLCS Cheerleaders hosted their 2nd Annual Sports Expo from 12pm-9pm SLT at their sim, Cheertopia.  SLCS invited representatives from all SL sports to participate.  Their sim was decorated with sports themed booths.  Turned out to be a great day of exploring, trash-talking, dancing and networking.  We wish anyone involved in an SL sport well and thank the SLCS for allowing the VBA to participate.

The VBA had a booth in addition to 7 individual VBA team booths.  GO HARD.. OR GO HOME!

Here are some photographs that highlight the events that day.

Sigma Upsilon Nu and the VBA Celtic’s Partner for a Worthy Cause

15 May

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Sigma Upsilon Nu, SL Sorority & The VBA Celtics hosted the 3rd Annual Lupus Awareness Event with the help of Kemijah Renegade a.k.a DJ Kemi Rock of AllNite Radio (www.allniteradio.com) . This event was created to bring awareness to those afflicted with this serious but silent disease.

One in 2,000 people in the United States has lupus; 90% of which are woman of color. Sigma Upsilon Nu’s mission is to bring awareness to this disease and raise funds towards the education and cure for Lupus. With the help of the VBA Celtics Dancers “Charmers” and the VBA Celtics Ballers we are pleased that our cause will get the exposure in the SL community.

This particular event has generated 7k lindens (equal to $28 USD) and will be donated to the Lupus Foundation on behalf of Sigma Upsilon Nu and the VBA Celtics.  In the three years they have dedicated their time to this cause, $3,000 USD has been raised.  Their goal this year is $200-500 USD.  Please join them in their mission and place a contribution using the following websites.  Monies are split between the US and the UK  –http://donate.lupus.org/site/PageServer and http://www.justgiving.com/lupusuk.
