CC Radio’s Philly Loves Haiti campaign raises $18K


Clear Channel Philly listeners across the Delaware Valley stepped up to the plate despite the weather and contributed nearly $18,000.00 to the American Red Cross Haiti Disaster Fund over the weekend.  Due to the forecast of a major snow storm the Philly Loves Haiti Radio-thon scheduled for Saturday February 6, 2010 to benefit the American Red Cross Haiti Disaster Fund was moved On-Line.  Announcers from WDAS-FM, Power 99, Radio 104.5, Q102, My106.1 and Rumba 1480-AM went on the air to tell listeners how they could get sought after autographed merchandise from their favorite artists and athletes through our online auction. Listeners could go to any of our Clear Channel websites to donate and bid on auction items all through snowy weekend.  

The bidding was hot for items like an acoustic guitar signed by Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers, an autographed poster of Pearl Jam’s last performance at the Spectrum and a meet and greet with WDAS air personality Steve Harvey.  The event was sponsored by CC Radio in Philadelphia, City Councilwoman Donna Reed Miller along with City Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell, City Councilman Curtis Jones, State Representative John Myers and Pat Redmond of the Heart of Philly MCs and the Tri-State Motorcycle community.
