48,500 Lindens were donated during the concert series for the building of the school in Southern Sudan : ).  It was great to have CraigLyons Writer, Harry Frycaster, Horacios Allen and GaGo SL ver play for this benefit, and I'll quote the email here I received from Robert Oryem, who heads up the ASERELA group:



I would like to thanks all of you for considering ASERELA for this honorable effort. Any contribution is something and can make a different. This fund will help us purchase bricks. I regret not being able to log on to the event. The photos you posted were awesome.

UPDATEDJan 30 by Cotton after meeting with Gwenette, Kay, Siri and Ga-Go

Date for concert:  February 6, 2010

Time:  3:30pm - 9pmSLT

Contact person:  Gwenette Writer


Synopsis:  Ga Go Band is a 7 member japanese rock band.  They came to Peace Train through Gwenette in early 2009, and performed an incredible concert (live) for PeaceFest 09.  Gwen made all the arrangements.  They speak a very little english, but nonetheless were captured by the Peace Train mission, and used their PeaceFest concert as a means of raising donations for the causes we were supporting.


They have then come back to Gwen with the idea of at least one additional concert to raise money. This benefit will specifically rasie funds for peace orgs working with war refugee children or educating children about cross cultural peace.  Benefiting organization is Aserela Maine.  http://www.aserelamaine.org/


VENUE determined to be at GWAMPA CAMP four sim venue with large social group. WE WILL BE ABLE TO DANCE!!


BOSL stage is 1. Too laggy - Gago has performed twice and disappointed with band's inability to move or folks to dance & 2. Not available Feb 06 which is best date for GaGo band

Setsuna stage builder has joined Gwampa group and will begin building tomorrow Jan 11.




We are still confirming performers and it looks like we will have mostly one hour shows with a few 30 minutes shows.

We also will have opening and closing ceremonies - so Peace Train folks should start thinking:)))

Planned to be part of day as scheduled mini-events and fillers (for when there are delays with performers:)) are auctions of one-of-a-kind dresses with live models and also one-of-a-kind art with artist present. 

If I can think of a creative way to display buildings - maybe a hologram rezzer type kisosk - we could also have a silent auction for one of a kind houses.  The BOSL rep said that is very popular. . . we could start building auction early so folks can visit the actual builds somewhere, as well as bid at the venue kiosks.


We will also have gift givers for the audience and use a server to change the gifts in each box for each concert/event . . .

I also want to have a nice program for promotion, embedded with notecards and links about performers, designers and artists. Folks arriving at the venue will receive the same program, but embedded with a few gifts of peace.
