The program’s keynote presentation featured a panel with Jacksonville business leaders discussing the importance of community investment to make a difference in people’s lives. The panelists included Gary Chartrand, executive chairman of Acosta; Preston Haskell, chairman of The Haskell Co.; Michael Ward, CEO of CSX Corp.; and Wayne Weaver, the former majority owner of Jacksonville Jaguars. Moderated by Karen Feagins of WJCT, the panelists discussed their philanthropic interests, their motivations for giving and the role of corporate philanthropy in each of their organizations.
