Filling The Cauldron, a fundraiser to help Second Life creator Elicio Ember and his family is still very much running, indeed it runs until April 9th, so there’s still plenty of time to visit.
The event has featured people whom I’m familiar with from Fantasy Faire, such as Sonya Marmurek and Caitlin Tobias who are amongst the artists mentioned in a Meet The Artists blog post :
Filling the Cauldron features eight art displays in the main event space, located next to the Welcome Area. The art of display comes from a mix of Invited and Guest Artists, and has a focus on Elicio Ember’s creations.
Our Invited Artists are Alisaundra Andel, the official Fantasy Faire photographer; Sonya Marmenuk, official Fantasy Faire webmistress and talented photographer and Caitlin Tobias, official fantasy faire blogger and photographer. Our Guest Artists are Ursula Floresby, Deoridhe Quandry and John Brianna, all of whom responded to our invitation to artists to display their art at Filling the Cauldron, and they are joined by Vecchio Barbosa and myself.
You can read more about the artists in that blog post.
There’s also a blog post about the marketplace at the event, this mentions my chief elf!
The marketplace blog post informs us :
When we decided to run Filling the Cauldron, we had no idea what the response would be – even though Elicio is well-known and loved, running an event benefiting an individual, rather than an entity, organisation or cause, can be fraught with difficulties. Truth be told, however, such is the love and respect so many in Second Life have for Elicio that no sooner had we started spreading the word, that offers of support came flooding in. And no truer was that the case than with merchants and creators from across Second Life.
In all, 20 merchants responded (although one had to sadly later drop out), offering to come along and set-up stalls or gacha machines, each agreeing to offer at least one item for sale with 100% of proceeds going to Filling the Cauldron (or 50% of sales in the case of gacha machines). In fact, we would have had more, but there is only so much available space.
This should also give you an idea regarding how much organising goes into an event such as this, with Inara Pey and Saffia Widdershins very heavily involved and working tirelessly.
Events include an Art Show, A Garden Contest, a Photo Contest and more, so there’s plenty to vote for or get involved with.
