The 24th Annual 16-Hour Salvation Army Bed and Bread Club Radiothon is tomorrow, Friday, February 25th. It will be broadcast live from the Oakland Mall from 6am to 10pm - this year on WJR-AM 760.
This is the first time in 24 years that I won’t be hosting the event because of my retirement from radio back in March, (this year the microphones will be manned by the WJR personalities), but I have been actively involved in the planning as a member of the Salvation Army Advisory Board. And, as always, will continue with my annual financial contribution!
This is the ONLY fundraiser the Salvation Army has to feed and shelter 5,000 men, women, and children in our area, 365 days a year.
A donation of $120 feeds one person for an entire year; $240 feeds two people for an entire year, but whatever you can afford is welcome and appreciated! And remember - no administrative costs are taken from your donation.
As you know, this cause is near and dear to my heart and your donations over the years have been remarkable to say the least. Last year we raised a total of $2.3 million dollars… and while we never set a goal, we always hope for at least a penny more! I hope that you will continue to support this most important program!
You can call now at 248-528-0760 or go to www.wjr.com!
Have a great day… and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow - Radiothon Day!
