Entercom’s WAAF 97.7/107.3FM Boston announced the station will once again host a fundraising event, “WAAF’s Rise Up Against Hunger,” from 12/11 to 12/13. WAAF on-air personalities Lyndon “LB” Byers and Anthony “Spaz” Parziale will ‘Rise Up’ on lifts, where they will live on a platform suspended high in the sky for three full days in an effort to raise funds for The Greater Boston, Worcester County and New Hampshire Food Banks.
Beginning at 6 am on 12/11, LB will ‘rise up’ on a lift located outside the Greater Boston Food Bank at 70 South Bay Avenue in Boston, where he will remain on a small platform, overlooking I-93 South, until 7 pm on 12/13. Spaz will do the same, rising up against hunger in Framingham, where he will live six stories in the air for three days above The British Beer Company, located at 120 Worcester Rd. Listeners are encouraged to visit LB and Spaz during the three days they are up in the sky and make a donation to “WAAF’s Rise Up Against Hunger” campaign.
For more than two decades, the station’s personalities have enlisted themselves in various physically challenging stunts in an effort to engage listeners to support area food banks.
