The goal of the event is to provide an incredible shopping, entertainment, and gaming experience. It will also feature exclusive items, auction, raffle, hunts and more. We also want to raise more awareness about this amazing charity. Lend your support to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.
About The Michael J Fox Foundation: Team Fox is the Grassroots Fund Raising Branch of the Michael J Fox Foundation. All their overhead and expenses are anonymously covered so that 100% raised by Team Fox is passed on to the Michael J Fox Foundation who then determines the most promising research into finding a cure for Parkinson's.
The Michael J Fox Foundation has the highest rating by Charity Navigator. They work very hard to keep their overhead exceptionally low at only 11%. They give 89%, directly to the best research. This is perhaps the highest amount going to research of any major charity in the world. Their commitment is to find a CURE not only to find more expensive medicine or treatments.

THE STORY OF CREATIONS PARK ~ Grown with Love Our RL Dad died with Parkinson's and our mother, Fran Seranade, has it now. To quote her "I may have Parkinson's, but it does not have me." At 90 "years young", she is active in Second Life and is thrilled to see herself running and dancing again. We have built everything on Creations Park with LOVE. We hope you can feel that love while you are enjoying yourself here.
OUR MISSION It is our Creations Team Mission to use our love and talents to make a difference in both the RL and SL worlds. We create experiences to stimulate Hearts, Minds, Bodies and Souls. It is our goal to help find a cure for Parkinson's which will then lead to a cure for all neurological diseases. Come share your love with us and help us find the cure!
