Notes Michael Lord, Senior Vice President of Business Development at LivWell, “420 is a celebration we look forward to every year, and although the landscape has changed due to COVID-19, we wanted to bring something to our local community that not only offers positivity in this trying time but also gives back to the many professionals in our area whose livelihoods have been impacted by the pandemic.”
Co-presented by Color Red, J2G Live, and Rooster Magazine, 420 For A Cause will take place in living rooms everywhere on Monday, April 20th from 1 p.m. MT (3 p.m. ET) through 5:20 p.m. MT (7:20 p.m. ET).
