Imagine my excitement on hearing the news that one of the beautiful photos Morgana Nagorski did of the Symphony sim brought in $25,000 lindens in a charity auction.

The auction was part of  Jamm for Genes charity weekend  organized by Australian rl and sl musician, Ohmy Kidd.  OhMy Kidd said  “Jamm for Genes is part of the annual ‘Jeans for Genes’ fundraiser for the Childrens Medical Research Institute, an Australian charity with global benefits.  Jamm for Genes is all about live music raising money, for research into cell biology that helps with both prevention and cure of childhood, congenital and genetic diseases.”  Morgana, also Australian, had donated two of her photos to the auction.  The second one brought in a donation of $1,000 lindens.

I thought you would like to see the high bid photo, which is also on display and for sale at Hopper House Gallery on Symphony through August 22. Tour the sim and see the objects and places, all the creative vision of Ando Jourbert, that inspired Morgana’s lovely work.
