JEFFERSON CITY - The United Way of Central Missouri's 2016 campaign theme was revealed with a mini parade Tuesday morning.

The campaign theme is "Rockin' the 80s".

"The theme plays an important role in setting the tone for the campaign," said Ann Bax, the United Way of Central Missouri president. 

Campaign Co-chair Matt Tollerton said, "We already have some great events planned around this theme that we know the community is really going to enjoy."

United Way also announced that it will be hosting its second annual Mid-Missouri's Got Talent event this year. All talent acts are required to be 80s themed. 

The event will take place at The Millbottom on Sept. 13. Those who want to participate in the talent show can submit their audition videos to the United Way of Central Missouri website.
