In the wake of the horrible tragedy at a Madden 19 tournament in Florida last month, EA announced it would donate $1 million to the families of those affected by the shooting. Another part of EA’s campaign in response to the shooting is the Jacksonville Tribute livestream event. This is a place where people can come together to remember Elijah Clayton and Taylor Robertson, who were killed in the attack.
The livestream will also help to support the survivors of the attack and encourage the community to come together to “share in the healing power of play.” Madden community members Scott Cole, Rico Williams, Adrienne Lawrence, and Dave Grunfeld will host the event.
The Jacksonville Tribute livestream takes place Thursday, September 6, starting at 5 PM ET and running through 6:30 PM ET. You can stream it above or through any of these locations:

In response to the shooting, EA created the Jacksonville Tribute Fund in partnership with the National Compassion Fund and GoFundeMe. EA itself donated $1 million, and is currently asking for more donations from the wider community. 100 percent of the funds will go to the families of the victims.
The August 26 shooting left three people dead, including the alleged shooter. Further Madden tournaments in the series have been canceled.
