WLLR held its annual St. Jude Radiothon on Thursday and Friday (12/9 and 12/10) to raise money for the children of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Thanks to YOU and our wonderful advertisers, we were able to raise $101, 172! What makes this donation amount even more amazing is that WLLR held their radiothon in February of this year, as well. During THAT radiothon, $93,678 was raised. That's almost a $7,500 increase in donations over the last radiothon, just 9 months ago. To be able to pull this off TWICE in one year during a pandemic with people uncertain about the future is amazing! It's even MORE amazing to be able to increase the amount of money raised.
We've always known that the Quad Cities were generous...this just cements that notion. 1037 WLLR wants to say THANK YOU to some amazing Quad Cities businesses like our presenting sponsor -Country Financial - Mitch Dietrich. Other Angel Of The Hour sponsors include: Iowa Cancer Specialists, Disc Replay, Davenport Guns, Whitey's Ice Cream, Vent Pro, Dog Watch, Johannes Bus Service. And, of course, a BIG thank you to listeners like you. We could not have done this without your help. Thank you!
