The 7-Eleven and Townsquare Media 18th Annual St. Jude Radiothon
The 7-Eleven and Townsquare Media 18th Annual St. Jude Radiothon is happening February 27 and 28, brought to you buy the Bosworth Company and Complex Community Federal Credit Union.
LoneStar 92 and 97.9 LITE FM will be holding this radiothon from 6:00AM-7:00PM.
Randy Owen, the lead singer from the country music super-group Alabama, helped start the “Country Cares for St. Judge Kids” back in 1989 after meeting with hospital founder Danny Thomas.
In the first year, it raised $1.25M in pledges and now has raised $181M in pledges across nearly 200 radio stations. LoneStar 92 and 97.9 LITE FM conducted our first radiothon in 1996. During our radiothon we share and educate about what St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital does for our community. We couldn’t have done this without the amazing support of the people at 7-Eleven. 7-11 is seriously committed to helping St. Jude. They have instituted numerous programs to raise money for St Jude as well as motivating their entire organization in engaging consumers to purchase St Jude pinups at all locations.
They have partnered with:
Frito Lay, who is donating 25 cents per large bag of Frito Lay products all month.
PepsiCo, who is donating 25 cents on all 20 oz Pepsi, Mountain Dew, and Dr Pepper beverages.
Alon, who is donating a penny for every gallon of fuel sold, coming up the 19th through the 26th.
We have also had huge support of The Bosworth Company and Complex Community Federal Credit Union.
During the radiothon, The ABCs of Cancer will be featured which is an amazing collection of poems. Each poem starts with a different letter of the alphabet and represents the emotional journey taken by a patient at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The ABC’s of Cancer is sponsored by our friends at Cinergy Cinemas. When was the last time you had a good giggle? Listen for our giggle breaks featuring a child’s laughter brought to us by Fletco Services.
