Home & Garden Expo Coordinator, Heavenly Villa says: “This event is for a great cause, we have all been affected by cancer in some way, personally or family members or friends. The Home and Garden Expo is an exciting and significant event where home and garden designers get to showcase their best work to a large SL audience.  They love the opportunity to come together for such a good event and to meet new people and chat with other builders.”

Enrico Genosse replies, "The VKC is pleased to keep up our tradition as a sponsor of this event. Our charitable efforts are usually directed toward animal-related organizations, but we think it also is important to support this wonderful cause: Relay For Life and the fight against cancer.
