I had a press release today from Team Diabetes of Second Life and they have opened the charity's first major event of the season in SL, a great Halloween sim called 'Scare Me Silly' The event is open now until October 31st and there is a lot going on there. They state "Performances and events will feature storytelling by Seanchai Library, audience participation cabaret by Whymsee, tribute concerts by Bad Amp Tribute Bands, DJ parties by Veruca Tammas, Sandi Loxingly, Johannes1977 Resident, and Mia Deluca. Other activities include haunted rides, 7Seas Fishing, a photo contest, and the Great Pumpkin Hunt."
I went over for a look around, and it's lots of fun. I took a tour in the creepy old haunted house, there were lots of things to make me jump! I just about got out of there with my virtual life in tact! You can take a ride on the ghost train too, if the haunted house didn't scare you silly already! For those who love shopping there's loads of stalls to wander around. The Diabetes team have done a brilliant job.
There are many good causes in Second Life and it's good to see Team Diabetes are here in SL.
(Here's some information from the team, go over and give your support to this very worthy charity:)
