Through their efforts and Columbus support, 44,508 donations were received this year and a total of $32,588,660 was raised in support of the nonprofits in our community. Along with initiatives like the Big Give, we saw Nationwide gather for a ‘Standing in Unity Moving Forward Together’ event that took place in the Arena District Friday morning June 12, where it was announced that $1 million dollars was donated to support efforts that promote social equality and justice through backing of the NAACP, The Bail Project and The Equal Justice Initiative.

2020 Playoffs

We’ve been missing our hockey lately but are excited that it will return with the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs! The Columbus Blue Jackets clinched a playoff spot among 24 teams. Columbus will face Toronto in the playoff qualifying series under the format announced by the league. “As we seek some return to normalcy, this is an important day, particularly for NHL fans,” Bettman, Commisioner for the NHL, said. “Since March 12, we have been hopeful and optimistic that by developing all options and alternatives, we could get to this point. I know I join sports fans everywhere when I say we cannot wait for our players to hit the ice again.” The Columbus Blue Jackets share more regarding the NHL framework towards capping the 2019-2020 season HERE.
