911 Gives Hope For The Holidays Returns Decmber 2-4
For this upcoming Holiday Season, 99.5 WKDQ will team up with Henderson Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and the 911 Gives Hope charity to present the 3rd annual “911 Gives Hope for the Holidays.” Last year we successfully filled a 53 foot trailer with toys that were distributed to the Children’s Wards at local hospitals. This year all 5 radio stations will again partner together for a mass broadcast “Radiothon” to urge the public to donate toys, clothing, gift certificates and more to Children’s Wards at Deaconess Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital, Methodist Hospital, Evansville Psychiatric Children’s Center and the Ronald McDonald House.
The Radiothon will begin 5am on Friday, December 2nd and will run thru 6pm on Sunday, December 4th. WKDQ will broadcast live from the Wal-Mart on Burkhardt the entire weekend with additional broadcasts, live from Henderson Chevrolet in Henderson, KY. Local Fire Departments, Police Departments, Sheriff’s Deparments and AMR will be in attendance all weekend in an effort to fill another 53 foot trailer.
The toys that are collected will be sorted and delivered to the local hospitals just in time for Christmas.
