to Raise Awareness About SCI/D
Cars! A passion, a hobby, and a culture. It all comes together for Second Life residents on Motorability Island in Second Life. United Spinal Association’s 7-sim Motorability Island, formerly Pontiac’s Motorati Island, is set for its grand opening on Saturday the 29th of March – however it’s open to the public now. Fashion Cars and Avatars is the theme for the event.
The island will provide an opportunity for United Spinal Association members to experience car culture related virtual events, activities, community building, educational seminars and pure racing fun on the many original venues and race tracks re-opened in early February. Event proceeds, sales of goods and services from commercial enterprise and sponsorships will contribute to raise awareness and provide funding to support United Spinal Association programs in the virtual and real world.
All proceeds to UnitedSpinal.org – Donate at designated donation kiosks in Second Life on Motorability Island go online here to donate directly to UnitedSpinal.org: www.unitedspinal.org/motorability
