“I consider my life a testament to the importance of investing in our youth. From an early age, youth organizations and caring mentors taught me the value of education. It has been the key to my personal success,” said Gary McCollum, SVP and general manager for Cox Virginia. “I’m excited that an evening of fun and musical entertainment from Richmond native Jason Mraz will benefit the young people in Cox communities throughout Virginia and help them reach their highest potential. Cox Charities is thrilled to welcome the 2013 People’s Choice Award winner for Pop Male Artist of the Year to Hampton Roads for this great event.”
