In what promised to be a spectacular evening, the 2013 Avi Choice Awards show, sponsored by Blake Hambleton and Shannon Bramlington of Sweethearts Jazz Club, certainly proved itself as a not-to-be-missed event.  The annual program was the result of months of preparation, building, rehearsal, and careful planning.  Its purpose:  to acknowledge top Second Life businesses, designers, performers, venues, and a host of other notable people and entities, chosen and voted on by SL residents.

The December 15th presentation began at 3PM SLT, and had such overwhelming response that multiple locations were constructed to accommodate the anticipated turnout.  Wayne Bentley’s auditoriums reflected his extraordinary skill and passion for building.  A HUD was available to those not seated in the main auditorium, for in-world screening via live broadcast on Aview TV.  The show was also simulcast online at Aviewtv.com and T1 Radio so fans and voters could watch or listen as they cheered for their favorite nominees.  And hosts Trader Whiplash and Nuala Maracas helped keep things moving along on schedule between the presenters and the entertainment.

The 2013 Avi Choice Awards, held on The Christmas Expo sim, was closed to the public.  Tickets or reservations had to be secured in advance to gain access at the formal black-tie event.  Live entertainment featured Particle Tom and Lexi Marshdevil, Therese Nightfire, Wayne Davis Rocks Band, and the Guerilla Burlesque Dancers.  Following the ceremonies and program was an after-party that included vocal offerings by Erin68 Frog and Satin Galli, as well as Savannah Coronet.
