Joel Zimmerman my be better known by his fans as the legendary helmet-wearing producer deadmau5, but in his home province of Ontario, he's also known to be an incredibly active community member. From supporting local businesses like his favorite coffee shop Tim Horton's to participating in local events, the Canadian producer is keen on spending time and energy when it involves the betterment of his community.

Earlier today, it was announced that deadmau5 would be the special guest for a large-scale fundraiser event presented by United Way Milton, a nonprofit organization devoted to raising and distributing charitable donations to social service agencies that will benefit the community.

In addition to the musical performance, the event will feature guest speakers including union and political leaders as well as a goal presentation and a barbecue. The event, which will mark Unity Way Milton’s biggest campaign in history, will take place at the Mohawk Racetrack in Campbellville, Ontario this Friday, September 25.

CEO at United Way Milton, Kate Holmes explained to the media the importance of the event for the organization's ability to continue making an impact in the community.
