There's a light of life that has been shined upon Lavolta Depina and it's called hope.

Day 4 has come to an end and once again there has been an outpouring of generosity from the SouthCoast community.

Lavolta was running low on energy due to her recent heart surgery and has been having a rough time recovering. Thankfully, our listeners and advertisers have come through in a big way to jump-start her future ambitions to continue on with her life and get back on track.

– Used Tire Warehouse in Wareham donated $500.

– Aaron Pools and Spas called up with a $1,500 donation.

– Dave Vermett of Vermett Development donated four brand new Whirlwind Appliances to be auctioned off at a very enticing price, raising over $2,000 alone.

– Turk's Seafood donated their 4th pair of Celtics tickets versus the Chicago Bulls and raised about $400.

With a total of $4,300 raised, Day 4 was a huge success for Holiday Wish and Lavolta Depina, and everybody here at Fun 107 could not be any happier for her.
