Today is a Pay It Forward day.

Every year, the SAG Foundation holds a charity Poker tournament to benefit a facility I’m very familiar with: the Don LaFontaine Voice-Over Lab.  If the name is vaguely familiar to you, then the voice is instantly recognizable: he was THE voice of movie trailers (and several other projects) in most of our formative years.

Among Don’s charitable acts was setting up a top end recording studio at SAG headquarters where future generations of voiceover artists could work on their craft.  The Poker Classic is the biggest fundraiser for the Lab every year, and I can tell you from experience it goes to a very worthy cause for upcoming actors.

Watch the video below, and if you’re free Saturday, then hey…
