Avi Awards Gift Bags!

Avi Choice awards program back cover Hello again!  A word about the gift bags.  For various reasons, the gift bags were not distributed to all ticket-holders at the Awards show on Sunday.  We felt it was in the best interest of our staff and the very generous donors who added things to the bags, for us to just go ahead and manually distribute them, to each and every ticket-holder, Avi Award recipient, nominee and cast member.  So, watch your message boxes.. our Avi Choice Elves are busy delivering the gift bags over the next couple days. Each Avi Award category winner has already been sent their 2013 gift bag and trophy.  Also, we inadvertently put a page acknowledging our gift bag donors in the shows program and put it on the back cover, which is not seen when viewed via the HUD.  So, we want to take this time to thank the generous designers and creators who provided amazing items for this year’s gift bags.  Look at what these generous Second Life residents and businesses provided for the various gift bags this year:
