The Parfait Party
BIG HEARTS SUPPORTING BIG DREAMS
26 HOUR MUSIC MARATHON IN SECOND LIFE
IN SUPPORT OF THE PARFAIT PARTY
REBELMUM SLADES’ DEFIANT RESPONSE TO STAGE IV CANCER
August 11 3pm to August 12 6pm
@ THE COLOUR FACTORY
At 3PM August 11 SLT a 26 hour Music Marathon commences in support of a very close friend of the Colour Factory, RebelMum Slade. @RebelmumSlade is not only fighting back against the Stage IV cancer in her body but planning to use every ounce of her strength for one great final life adventure reaching out to remarkable people (like her) and recording their stories to help support, comfort and inspire others. RebelMum calls this adventure and act of defiance against cancer, the Parfait Party.
This music marathon is being held to raise money and more importantly to raise the awareness of her story, her adventure and help bring her into contact with people who may become part of her journey. Along with the music from some of SecondLifes most talented and generous musicians Bright Oh will be attempting to sing one hundred of the original songs of SOAR. As Bright puts it – such an epic undertaking by RebelMum deserves something epic in support!
We would love for you to be part of the marathon!

What is the Parfait Party?
Vanessa Taylor was recently diagnosed with secondary breast cancer. It is incurable and life expectancy is about three years. Instead of spending all her remaining time in hospital and focused on health issues, Vanessa has decided to undertake a bold adventure spreading positive stories to all and raising funds for charities. The Parfait Party is:
Vanessa will travel Australia for as long as possible, seeking out inspiring stories and holding charity fund raising events. She is offering some excellent opportunities and perks for anyone wishing to be a virtual traveller; visit http://igg.me/p/121859?a=698918 and pick a perk, join the virtual road trip. Even if you can’t contribute to the Parfait Party you can still help by leaving a comment and Tweet or share using the tools from the Parfait Party site
Finding and celebrating awesome everyday people
While traveling Vanessa will seek out 48 people from around Australia who are unique, inspiring, courageous or just plain awesome. You know, someone who is meeting a challenge, or beating odds and makes you yell “That’s Awesome!” Vanessa will compile these unique stories into a book and feature these everyday inspirations on her blog to share the goodness.
Fund-raising for local charities
And if that wasn’t challenging enough, Vanessa and her remote team will also be hosting hilarious charity fund raising events along the way – the Parfait Party Events. At these events Vanessa will talk about her adventure, a local Awesome Aussie will speak about their unique life and a percentage of proceeds from the Event will go to a local charity, nominated by the Awesome Aussie.
