Recap: Auctions

Her High Faireness Elizabeth Tinsley as the Queenie, FantasyFaire

The final weekend of this year’s Faire is now over, and that means that both Silent and Live Auction are now wrapped as well.

Silent Auction ended on Saturday after a tense quick-clicking combat and brought over 500,000 lindens into the RFL kiosk.

Sunday was spent in the marathon of excitement that is known as the Live Auction. Build sets to make yourself a Faireland, already-familiar-and-loved landmarks from the Fairelands and highlights of the Faire were auctioned off in heated bidding wars and the RFL kiosk barely held itself up with the 2,347,688 linden dollars that were poured into it by the end of the evening.

Somewhere during the auction the threshold to 20 million lindens was broken, and not much later, 21 million lindens. Guess that 21 for 21 was not just about the amount of regions! We are currently at 21,578,147 linden dollars relayed to Relay For Life and American Cancer Society. That is 86,312 US dollars. 

There are no words grand enough for that statement. We need to come up with new ones. So, that’s Faire work! Thank you, Fairelanders.
