FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
6 AUGUST 2010
2010 SL® Shoe Fair to Benefit Soles4Souls
Sponsored by Gos Custom Footwear, R2 Fashion, N-Core Design, SLink

The expo is to benefit Souls4Soles, which you can read about here: http://www.soles4souls.org/
Last year's Footwear Expo was to benefit Toys for Tots and ran November 22 to December 6th. We raised $2500 USD for the cause. This year's event will benefit Soles4Souls and we hope to raise one million Lindens this year!
The event will run from August 7 - 22, 2010. Over 50 Shoe Designers from across the grid willl be showcasing their creations (most with new items introduced exclusively at the expo!) and helping to sponsor and support the benefit. In addition there will be a flickr photo contest, a Blogger contest, and a massive blow-out party at the end of the Expo.
We have a couple of exciting new things this year, first up Gatcha! There will be a couple of Gatcha machines on each sim with special items from Adorkable Poses, Boom, Exodi, Glitterati, Whippet & Buck, Diesel Works, Haven Designs, Stellar and Fri.day!
The other thing are our Haybalers, these are another way for non-shoe designers to sponsor the fair and offer a few goodies for sale. Look for them along the paths as you walk around the sims.
