Meeting Street Radiothon and Telethon Beats $1 Million Goal
Congratulations to everyone over at Meeting Street in Providence, Dartmouth and New Bedford for another incredibly successful fundraising effort over the weekend.
The final numbers have been released, and their aggressive $1 million goal was met – and exceeded – on Saturday night.
The final tally for the fundraiser was $1,064,405. You read that correctly. Over $1 million was raised for this fine organization.
If you had a chance to stop in and visit the Rock and Fox Show on Friday morning at the Sunrise Bakery and Coffee Shop on Dartmouth Street in Dartmouth, you contributed to that final figure. Half of all of the sales, while we were broadcasting at the bakery, was donated to this fundraiser. Obviously, the lion's share of the fundraising came from the telethon, but every bit of money helps, and your contributions made a difference.
Big thanks to our Radiothon co-hosts Elicia and Jaidan. They helped us both on the radio on Friday and then rocked their formalwear on WPRI-TV 12 Saturday night.
Meeting Street is the not-for-profit organization that is the parent company to the Schwartz School (formerly known as the Schwartz Center). The school is so important to the SouthCoast community, providing an innovative special education curriculum. The school serves students ages three to 22 years old with multiple disabilities and complex medical needs.
We can tell you first hand that the work that is happening at the Schwartz School is remarkable. The entire staff at the school is incredible and loving. We are privileged here at Fun 107 to be associated with such a worthy cause.
