The United Way of Northeast Florida and CSX presented Uniting for Tomorrow: A Community Concert Celebration April 13 at James Weldon Johnson Park, featuring live music throughout the decades in honor of United Way’s 100th anniversary of impact in Northeast Florida.

The event, held at the location of the first-ever United Way rally in April 1924, brought headliners John Lumpkin and The Covenant, The Katz Downstairz and Mama Blue with additional special performances by Reese the Poet, Jacksonville Dance Theatre and Dr. Doom. It also hosted a Jacksonville Jaguars Kids Zone, activities, food, drinks and prizes.

The United Way’s milestone was underscored by its mission to give hope and opportunity to those who need it most through providing basic needs, strengthening financial well-being and advancing racial equity.
