March 12 message from the United Way:

At United Way, we’re all about building healthy communities. We know this work is important to you, and we’re so glad you’ve decided to be part of it. Our annual LIVE UNITED Celebration allows us to thank you for your fantastic support and tout the collective impact we achieve together. 
As the situation with COVID 19 continues to develop, we think it is important to stay flexible and responsive to changes in this dynamic environment. Our organization fights for the health of every individual in the Blackhawk Region, and we feel a responsibility to take extra precautions to minimize the virus spreading unintentionally to communities and vulnerable populations. So, out of an abundance of caution, we are postponing the LIVE UNITED Celebration scheduled March 31st. 
United Way is doing our part to make sure our community is as safe and healthy as it can possibly be. We apologize for any inconvenience this may pose for our loyal supporters, and appreciate your understanding. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. 
Thank you for Living United.
Rescheduled Date
We have tentatively rescheduled the event for Wednesday, June 3 and will further communicate details as they develop. United Way Blackhawk Region will continue to refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, state and local health officials for guidance moving forward.

Previously reported:

United Way Blackhawk Region will recognize its donors, corporate supporters, volunteers and community partners on Tuesday, March 31, at its annual LIVE UNITED Celebration.

By 7:30 a.m., doors to the Pontiac Convention Center in Janesville will open and a buffet breakfast prepared by Best Events Catering will be served. The program and awards ceremony will begin at 8 a.m. and is expected to last approximately an hour.

Designed as an inspirational event to celebrate local philanthropy and the collective impact we achieve together, community members are welcome to attend. To offset the expense of the event, tickets are required. Tickets to the LIVE UNITED Celebration are on sale now and may be purchased online at or via phone at 608.314.8423. Individual tickets cost $25; sponsorship of a corporate table is available for $275 and includes logo recognition and reserved seating for eight. Non-corporate tables, as well as individual tickets are open seating; therefore reservation of a corporate table ensures a team is seated together.
