Catalyst of Fantasy Millenium is proud to announce the 2nd Annual Adopt A Family Benefit .
Catalyst of Fantasy Millenium is not a modeling agency, but has been created for the sole purpose of this benefit, by Lacie Beningborough.
This benefit is to take place on December 21, 2010 at 1 PM SLT at the new Patch Thibaud Auditorium.
There will be one rehearsal on December 20, 2010 @ 4 PM SLT to go over the simple walk and to hand out clothing .
Christmas is coming and for many of us, it is a time of joy, family, happiness and cheer. We look forward to seeing family and friends, to laughter, and togetherness.
For some though, the holiday season is a time filled with stress and worry. These difficult economic times that we live in bring that much more stress to this time of year.
That is why I have founded the Adopt A Family Benefit.
This began in November of 2009, when it was brought to my attention that a family was in very dire need that year. They were in jeopardy of losing everything, the husband had just lost his job and she had two chronically ill children.
I was so saddened by this that I began this benefit for her.
In three weeks, to my astonishment, we were able to raise a tremendous amount of USD for this family.
I said it would become a tradition, and , with that promise behind me, I am back to do it again this year.
This time I would like to help more than one family. I would like to help as many families as I possibly can.
I approached Mr. Frolic Mills about this and he has donated the Patch Thibaud Auditorium and the possible inclusion of the new MISS VIRTUAL WORLD alongside with the contest’s finalists.
“Since we don’t know who they will be yet, we can’t confirm the assistance of them all, but we will do our best.” He said.
We are hoping this will be an opportunity to see the newly crowned queen in her first show !
How awesome is that?
Now this is where you come in.
I need designers, models, and an assistant to help me pull this together.
All items must be donated, as this is a charity event.
This is an excellent opportunity for up and coming designers to work along side established ones and to have their work seen by the fashionistas of SL
If you could please create a one time only design specifically for this event, or an as yet to be released design that would be ideal. Alternatively, you can re-release a design that you have already made in new textures, colours etc. Just so long as it is exclusive to this benefit, it will be perfect. If you could commit to 3 garments each for this show that would be ideal. All designers will, of course, be given full credit .
These designs will be auctioned off to raise money for this benefit.
I need hair, skins, clothing for both male and female , jewelry and shoe sponsors.
The models will put together a “look” for each creation, and then everything in that folder will be auctioned; clothing, hair, skin, shoes, jewelry, all of it.
Please send a notecard with your name and the clothing you will be donating to me as soon as you possibly can, so that I can get on with casting.
All designs should be submitted TRANS/NO COPY so that the models can give the folders out to the auction winners .
Models: This is an UNPAID job as this is a charity event, but it will look amazing on your resume.
I would love to get all former Catalyst of Fantasy models together again for this benefit, but the casting is open to all.
If you are interested, please send me a -notecard- with your name and I will inform you of the date and place of the casting call. Please DO NOT IM me, as they get capped daily. I will not get your message. NOTECARD ONLY. Please make sure you have one group space open and are able to make the rehearsal and show :)
Assistant: I will need an assistant who is comfortable working with the professionals in SL, can approach designers, entertainers, etc., is tactful and polite and has a strong business background. You must be able to work with a minimum of supervision, and be available daily to check in with me . This is clearly a un-paid and temporary position, but it will be greatly appreciated by all of us involved in this benefit. Must have an excellent command of the english language and excellent writing skills.
Again, NOTECARD ONLY please
Nominees: If you know of someone who is experiencing financial difficulty this holiday season and would like to submit them for this benefit, please send me a notecard with their avatar name, a brief description of why you feel they would be good candidates for this, and your full avatar name. Your name will not be released to the person you nominate, unless you have given express permission to do so in a no mod notecard, created and signed by you.
All monies will be supervised and accounted for by myself and an independant third party.
Please consider to take part in this wonderful opportunity to give back to those around us that make our lives so rich.
I look forward to hearing from you very soon.
I am already signed up to model for this event as well as several well known models. It is a great charity to help a fellow SL Model in need. I was involved in this charity last year and it was a success. Please help if you can. Thanks…………. RicoRacer Flux
PS: SEND all notecards to Lacie Beningborough for consideration.
