A Look Back: 2010

This Time Tomorrow

This week, our look back will go back even further… to the year 2000 and the start of “This Time Tomorrow.”

In 2000, Cory Zimmermann’s friend and co-worker was diagnosed with Lymphoma. Cory was devastated that he couldn’t do more to help him through a difficult time. The helplessness inspired him to write a song titled “This Time Tomorrow,” which was later made into a music video, and became a vehicle to help people affected by cancer.

Fast forward to 2010 and the 10th anniversary of This Time Tomorrow, and with the help of z2, Cory led the charge to re-record the song, but this time, with a little help from his friends. More than dozen local musicians and vocalists joined in, contributing to the song and video, and many had their own stories of those they knew who had been affected by cancer. It turned out amazing.

But we weren’t done… When z2 gets into a project, we really get into a project. And if it’s for a good cause, that’s all the more reason to get involved, so we started planning a benefit concert featuring more than a half-dozen local bands, all to raise not just money–but awareness–about cancer and those affected by it.

That year, we also saw Deb Zindler named Woman of the Year by the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for our efforts, and then won 7 Telly awards for the video! (Plus a Communitas Award.)

So while 2010 was quite a year for z2 and our charity, 2013 is another big year. On Saturday, October 26th, 2013 is the 4th Annual Benefit Concert and CD Release. It’s a “dress to impress” event, and we’d love to see you there. Besides great live music by Erica Hoyt, Shealeigh, and I’m Not A Pilot, you’ll also see the new video featuring C. Thomas Howell and have a chance to win some impressive auction items, enjoy amazing food & drink, and best of all, help those in need.
