In a string of dateless Saturday nights, May 9 may be the one that pulls you out of your coronavirus doldrums. Alan Locher, former soap publicist, and Daytime Emmy winner Laura Wright (Carly, General Hospital), will cohost a live variety show to wash away your COVID-19 blues.
The event will be in partnership with Daytime Cares, a Daytime TV community organization spearheaded by Days of Our Lives' Arianne Zucker (Nicole) and Shawn Christian (ex-Daniel). The focus is to highlight non-profit organizations that offer COVID-19 support and resources to frontline workers and others who need help through volunteering or donations.
