Radiothon for Make A Wish
106.3 The River partnered with Make A Wish for the third-annual Ohio Valley Honda radiothon held from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on June 18 at Mario’s Restaurant in Weirton. “During the eight-hour broadcast we spoke with donors, Wish Kids and parents of Wish Kids,” an event spokesperson noted. “A wish was actually granted on air to Wish Kid Emily, who has a bone marrow disease. Her wish is to go to college to become a nurse so she can help others as she was helped. She received a monetary gift toward her tuition while on air with 106.3 The River,” the spokesperson continued. The radiothon goal was to reach last year’s dollar amount of $10,000. “Thanks to sponsors and a constant stream of generous listeners who stopped by, our total by the end of the day was $17,159, and it is still growing.” To make a donation, volunteer or for questions, call Make A Wish at (304) 292-5600. Sponsors included Ohio Valley Honda, Davis Homes, Cedar One Realty, R.E. Saxon Jeweler, Howard Bowers Contracting, L.J. Bowers Inc., Atomic Tattoo and Smokey’s Tobacco Outlet.
