There is no doubt things are different this year, but we are so impressed with the virtual events that have been planned. The list we have compiled are ones that are using their platform to raise funds for COVID-19 relief and groups like the Last Prisoner Project
Cannabis events The Emerald Cup and the National Cannabis Festival (which would have taken place in Boston on 4/20) have joined forces to curate a coast-to-coast benefit supporting people impacted by COVID-19.
Cannabis event planning and production company Farechild is curating a livestream variety show to benefit Feeding America, a nonprofit that powers food banks and meal programs. Chronic Relief will feature telethon-style musical performances, and interviews with influencers and celebrities.
Colorado cannabis company Lightshade, which operates eight dispensaries in Denver and Aurora, is throwing a virtual concert and fundraiser encouraging donations to nonprofits like Urban Peak, which provides services to homeless youth, and hunger relief org Metro Caring.
