As the Avi Choice Awards voting period draws to a close (February 23rd), I want to take this opportunity to look back at just a few of the things that have taken place at Angel Manor.
As of January 1, 2014, Angel Manor consisted of seven sims: The Theatre, the family home, four rental properties and one private estate. by the close of 2014, Angel Manor grew to nine sims with the addition of the Garden and Retreat sims. It’s been a busy time of growth and we are very happy with our current holdings.

We do not anticipate the addition of additional properties in 2015 (but never say never). Rather, we plan to focus on increased activities across the family’s vast holdings. With that goal in mind, we seek to add two staff members. The first is an Events Coordinator who will manage both the procurement of musical artists and create and manage events for both the Angel Manor community and for the public. The second position is that of the Curator to replace Kylie Sabra Angel. Kylie will take on the role of Public Relations. While continuing to pursue her design career, she has now joined the ranks of SL’s musical talents as a blues/jazz singer.
INTRODUCING LISA VALENTINO
The past year brought a new addition to our family; Lisa Valentino, who has taken on the role of Angel Manor Charities support coordinator. As Charity Support Coordinator, Lisa manages our charity events to support real-world, non-profit charity organizations and Second Life charity organizations that are working directly and with the public participation. Charity work has been an integral part of her real life and has naturally factored into her Second Life here at Angel Manor as well. As a result, Lisa’s focus is global, with a mission to engage with charities and raise funds to help these organizations build a better world. In a few words, her beliefs are passionately quoted as, “Charity is based on relating to all needs and seeks to promote international harmony with a cohesive spirit of giving, so all may have equal opportunities in life.”
In addition to her work in charity, Lisa also manages the numerous and ongoing venue requests that Angel Manor and The Rose Theatre receive for private parties (such as weddings, receptions, rez day parties, anniversary celebrations,) and use of the space for a wide range of other events.
Watch for more details on Lisa’s role as an Angel Family member on the weeks and months to come.
As mentioned in a previous post, Angel Manor is up for several Avi Choice awards for 2014.
