Live Music Stage at Club Surge
On Tuesday, May 11 Club Surge opened their doors for a grand opening party.
The club, owned by business owner/entrepreneur Scorpinosis Nightfire, made a grand gesture and donated all proceeds from their 12 hour event to The Relay for Life (RFL) Charity Organization.
In the 12 hour period, Club Surge and their staff and guests raised over L$20K. Even the scheduled DJs donated their time to this wonderful event in support of The RFL.
The DJs who donated their time were Cupcake Aero, Silvercloud Destiny, Layandria Sweetwater, Ired Runningbear, Demoneka Daehlie and Nani Xue.

The opening day was led by DJ Cupcake, rocking tunes from country to rock and dance to Top 40 music. In attendance was none other than Scorpinosis himself and host Nani Xue.
Club Surge is open to all types of music, making this location a great place to listen and support all forms of music.
The layout is open and bright, an inviting space with a runway type dance floor.
The outer areas support local businesses but keeping it to a minimum.
This helps with lag issues while you are partying. : )
There is a stage to one side, also making this a great place for the live music scene.

A bit about the Relay for Life organization.
This organization is the American Cancer Society's signature fund raising activity.
In both worlds, it offers people to come together in an opportunity to bring awareness, much needed funds and support in the fight against one of the world's biggest health concerns, Cancer.
In Second Life, this annual event takes place in July each year bringing volunteers to form teams to have fun and walk a track just like in Real Life, meet those in similar situations, share and raise awareness and fund raise to provide funding for Cancer research and supporting programs for those living with or taking care of someone with Cancer.
In 2009, The Relay for Life campaign raised $274,000 for the American Cancer Society.
As well, there we participants from over 26 countries taking part in this campaign in 2009, making it an international movement. And now with the bridged gap between Second Life and Real Life, this event is a historical achievement.
