Hope Photography Contest & Silent Auction Winners

On April 26th, Groovy Kinda Quest team announced the beginning of the Hope Photography Contest. Originally slated for judging on May 13th, Mother’s Day in the US, the ceremony was postponed to June 10th. Has Lassard of Art in the Park, Hobak, was Master of Ceremonies, exhibit sponsor & judged the 21 entries along with fellow SL photographers, Shoshanna Epsilon, Osprey Therian & Petal Rich. They each chose a 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winner in each of the three categories & votes were tallied to determine final winners. On June 10th at Art in the Park, Heath Elvehjem donated his time & talent to perform live piano music for this RFL fundraiser, with over 250 in attendance. Entry requirements were to include the word Hope creatively in the picture or title, originating from in-world & a minimum $100L donation per entry. The silent auction of all entries ran from 2pm until midnight.
