Press Release

Tampa, FL (July 28th, 2019): At the end of this year’s charity marathon, we announced the conclusion of the 2020 GCX Event Season would be a live Showcase at Full Sail University on August 14th. Unfortunately, due to the continued impact of COVID-19 on the industry, and the resulting shift in budgets, marketing calendars, and announcement schedules. It became increasingly more difficult to create the show we wanted to produce.

While we cannot hold a live showcase, we will still be able to provide the community with the previously planned panel content for the event. Once again, we know that this situation isn’t ideal but we still believe in the power of community to continue supporting St. Jude through it all. While the Rare Drop Team pushes forward, we want to give you the best show we can through the panels and conversations we have planned.
