Rock Your Rack 2017 Official AD

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 Xplicit 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: Rock Your Rack

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!

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.

National Breast Cancer Foundation


NBCF 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.

Hey folks!  This will be my last post for several days at least.  I go into the hospital tomorrow for a pretty major surgery.  I wanted to squeeze out another post mainly to promote a great event that opens tomorrow.  The KT Creator’s Festival is a charitable event that supports The World Autism Organization.  Autism is a cause that is near to my heart.  Several people whom are very close to me have autistic children.  I have seen the struggles they face on a daily basis, but I’ve also seen the pure love and joy these children bring.  Be sure to swing by this event starting tomorrow and support this worthwhile cause.  I am wearing a great, sex top from the event from Ecstasy Designs.  It comes with a the lace bralet and the pulled up top.  I’m wearing a cute, summery hair from Firelight, named Venus.  YOu can grab it at the current round of Twe12ve.  I grabbed my adorable poses at The Season’s Story, from Sari-Sari.  They are bento enabled!  Speaking of bento…I am featuring the new ring set from Drastic again, this time with the nails they come with, which have cute lil hearts cut out of them!  I swear, I don’t want to take these rings off!  I am in love!

Now on to the decor!  My adorable beach cabana is from Wimey, whom just graciously accepted me as a blogger for the brand!  The gorgeous wood table is also from Wimey, the materials on the table are amazing!  The Placemats, cushions, clock, mirror, wall hanging, decorative jars, and planters are all from Black Tulip’s Tropical Gacha which is at the current round of The Liaison Collaborative!  I’m sitting on one of the cushions using my pose hud, the cushions are decorative only.  My dinner date aka the mannequin is from TMT, isn’t he cute?  I think he likes me!  You can grab it at the KT Creators Festival, along with the gorgeous artwork from AJ’s Studio, which is behind me in the pictures, the gorgeous rug from Lunar and the comfy, cute hammock from Cosmos.  I’m also showing you a couple decorative items from a new store on the grid, Gecko Designs created these original mesh flower and light items.  I thought they looked perfect in this set up.  I hope you like this post, look and set up!  I will see you all as soon as I can return!  Keep me in your thoughts and prayers!  Until next time….
