And Just Like That...

To Benefit Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and The American Cancer Society.
From October 8 to October 17, 2021!
The 2021 SciFi Expo: Journey to New Eden

Once more unto the breach! A massive thank you to everyone who came and took part in the 2021 SciFi Expo, from our Region Sponsors: Javik Station, Arius City, solares, New Frontiers, Digital Farm Systems (DFS), and Dark Star Radio, to our exhibitors and merchants, event hosts and performers, press and bloggers, and to all of our visitors and guests.

The 2021 SciFi Expo was record breaking for us in so many ways starting out on day one we surpassed our initial fundraising goal of L$1,000,000 (US$4,000), more than the entire final total of last year’s 2020 SciFi Expo in a single day, but not only did we reach our initial goal, we doubled it ultimately raising a grand total of L$2,042,691 (US$8,170.76) to benefit Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and the American Cancer Society.

We are so beyond incredibly grateful to everyone who made a donation this year, thank you for helping to make such an impact. Whether through a purchase, an event, or even simply just donating through a kiosk, thank you for your support. 

Thank you for helping to make the 2021 SciFi Expo such a massive success, without your support the Expo simply would not be possible, and so we are incredibly grateful for the continuous support shown from all the entire community, thank you, and we cannot wait to celebrate with you again!

About the SciFi Expo
The SciFi Expo is an event in Second Life held to benefit Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, a campaign sponsored by the American Cancer Society. SciFi Expo’s mission is to help unite the residents and community together against a common cause. This great cause is to help bring awareness and donations to support finding a cure for Breast Cancer. The mission also strives to help the American Cancer Society fund breakthrough research about breast cancer, provide free information and to support people in reducing the risk of breast cancer and finding methods early to prevent complicated treatments.

About the American Cancer Society
The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of 2.5 million volunteers saving lives and fighting for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. As the largest voluntary health organization, the Society’s efforts have contributed to a 22 percent decline in cancer death rates in the U.S. since 1991, and a 50 percent drop in smoking rates. Thanks in part to our progress; 14.5 million Americans who have had cancer and countless more who have avoided it will celebrate more birthdays this year. We’re determined to finish the fight against cancer. We’re finding cures as the nation’s  largest private, not-for-profit investor in cancer research, ensuring people facing cancer have the help they need and continuing the fight for access to quality health care, lifesaving screenings, clean air, and more. For more information, to get help, or to join the fight, call us anytime, day or night, at 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer.org.

About Making Strides Against Breast Cancer
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is the American Cancer Society’s premier event to raise awareness and funds to fight breast cancer. But it’s more than just the name of a walk – it describes the amazing progress we’re making together to defeat this disease. Since 1993, 4 million walkers have raised more than $280 million through Making Strides. In 2007 alone, nearly 500,000 walkers across the country collected more than $50 million to help fight breast cancer. Learn more
