Since the COVID pandemic threw a wet blanket over the original plans, United Way of Portage County will soon – finally – get to celebrate its 50th Anniversary. The agency passed that milestone in December 2020…but shutdowns and restrictions resulting from the pandemic put the brakes on any festivities. With that crisis in the rear-view mirrors, United Way is joining with Kent Stage for a special concert celebration. On Saturday, June 11, the show features “Bluffet,” a Jimmy Buffet tribute band that brings eight performers to the stage along with special props and Conga lines. Joining Bluffet for the night are local favorites Blue Taxi Duo. The concert happens at 7:00PM June 11…and special ticket packages are available. Proceeds benefit United Way of Portage County.
