ROCK YOUR RACK 2017

–FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE–

ROCK YOUR RACK 2017
September 30, 2017 – October 14, 2017

Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women. 1 in 8 women, and an every increasing percentage of men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival.

Models Giving Back is pleased to present Rock Your Rack, an annual fundraising event combining the best of SL Music, Art and Fashion to support the work of breast cancer charities and raise awareness for early detection which is critical to a positive outcome for this devastating disease.

This year’s event will support the National Breast Cancer Foundation which provides free mammograms, education, support and early detection services to anyone in need.

The 2017 event involves 58 designers including Platinum Sponsors: Aleutia, Chiffon, Designs by Soosy., Mahlberg Tailors, Miss Darcy, Nerd Alert, Prey, Prism and Xpicit Furnishings. In addition, this year’s event will feature 2D and 3D artists with an Art show sponsored by Kultivate Magazine. Add to that the 4 Tribute concerts, 15 DJ Dance Parties, 8 Live Music Artist Shows, 11 Fashion Shows, the 10L Hunt, Silent Auctions, Art Auction and you have one must-visit event.

Designers will be providing exclusive creations with 100% of the sales of those items going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation along with a fine selection of the newest and most popular designs donating a percentage as well.

For a complete listing of events and more details on this year’s event, please visit the website: http://rockyourrack.wordpress.com

This year’s event officially opens to the public on Saturday, September 30, 2017, at 12:00 am SLT and will close at 11:59 pm SLT on Saturday, October 14, 2017.

Together we can make a difference!

About Models Giving Back

Models Giving Back is an agency of professional, certified SecondLife models who give of their time and talents to raise funds for legitimate and verified SL and RL charities.

Models Giving Back was founded in October of 2012 by Jamee Sandalwood after a previous agency dedicated to charity work was forced to close due to the owner leaving SecondLife. Jamee felt the work that was being done needed to be continued and set out to lead the models that were already a part of the former agency into new and bigger endeavors at the newly created Models Giving Back.

To date, the agency has partnered with dozens of designers and provided models for runway, print and other functions that support charities around SL.

Rock Your Rack is the creation of Jamee Sandalwood and is owned exclusively by Models Giving Back in SecondLife.

About the National Breast Cancer Foundation

The National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1980 at the age of 34. At the time of her diagnosis, there was little information about the disease, and she was forced to make a decision about her health with few options. After her treatment, Janelle made a commitment to help women around the world by educating them about breast cancer and the importance of early detection. NBCF’s mission is to save lives through early detection and to provide mammograms for those in need. This mission includes increasing awareness through education, providing diagnostic breast care services for those in need, and providing nurturing support services.

Rustic yet cozy, you’ll feel like you’ve entered a hunting lodge when you have this lovely living room set in your home. Not into the manly hunting items? There are alternatives you choose to replace them with included! Opt for the stylish Mesa Rug instead of the Deerskin Rug, a Wreath instead of the Gunrack or the Portrait of Deer frolicking in the woods over the Mounted Deer Head. This set truly has options that everyone can enjoy!

NVhe for FFL 2016 – by PetraLAlexander-Valerian©™

STYLING
1. FFL EXCLUSIVE – NVhe True Points in Dark Blue top and skirt.
True Points are representative of that central aspect to all relationships, the truth. We all feel we have a grasp of it, but yet it is relative to our perspective or where we stand when viewing the truth. My spot is different than your spot. This is why we can come from the same conversation understanding different things. Nothing like making life interesting and a life long adventure. Life is messy, let’s get dirty with it.
