Stand Up to Cancer

Sep 10, 2010 08:00 PM

TV Network - ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC

It is a rare thing when the networks get together to air a single program, but that's exactly what they're doing tonight.  The major broadcast networks are all going to be standing up together to try and fight cancer.  By that we imagine that there will be an extensive fundraising component, which is actually really nice.  Think about it, by their fundraising they're actually suggesting - nay, asking - you to join them in the fight.  And that is kind of like the networks all wanting a piece of you, which is just nice.

    Every other year, the networks seem to get together and air this live fundraising special.  It features celebrities, doctors, and others urging you to donate money.  This will be the fourth such special, and the organization was founded in 2008.  To this point, according to their website, Stand up to Cancer has raised 261 million dollars which is an amazing amount of cash.

    The first "Stand up to Cancer" television event was in 2008 and the second in 2010.  Keeping with the previously established every other year time frame, tonight, all the major networks--and various cable networks as well--will be airing this hour-long fundraiser.  The event will air live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles and will air commercial free.  Expect to see a whole lot of stars appear to help educate viewers and to solicit donations.
