Due to this coronavirus pandemic, it seems everything is getting postponed or canceled. Earlier this week was a postponement I knew was coming, but still dreaded. The organizers for Voices Against Cancer officially announced that the event would be postponed until the summer of 2021. Of all the cancellations lately, this one is probably the saddest for me. Not only was the geek in me looking forward to meeting all of the great voice actors, but I was genuinely hoping the event would raise tons of money for pediatric cancer.
The good news though, is that the organizers have a full extra year to make sure the event is truly epic. Honestly, an event such as this would have required a lot of attendance to raise money. With social distancing, I don’t see how that could have been done. Now the next year can be spent getting the word out and preparing for an event that I think could become a benchmark for all geeky fundraisers going forward.
Over the next year, I will continue to do posts about the event. I hope to do continued posts highlighting the talent scheduled to appear. And once the podcast gets going, I want to have an organizer on my show.
Song of the day: Seasons in the Sun
I was pretty sad when I first heard this was postponed. This classic Terry Jacks song came into my head at the time.
Bonus Song: The Show Must Go On
Luckily I wasn’t sad for long. Queen better portrays my feelings of the Voices Against Cancer event being moved to 2021.
