Sludgeathon: My favorite day of radio benefits LFM
Sixth annual 24-hour marathon is happening again on April 20-21
I’ll be broadcasting my sixth annual 24-hour show benefitting the Lupus Foundation of Minnesota this April 20th through the 21st on FM 100.3 KFAN. I’ll be doing a show for 24 straight hours, aided along the way by tons of friends and coworkers such as Chris Hawkey, Paul Lambert (Meatsauce), Paul Allen, The Common Man Dan Cole, Mark Rosen, former Viking Ben Leber, Justin Gaard, Brandon Mileski, AJ Mansour, Paul Charchian, Joe Nelson, Pat Brannan, Dan Barreiro and many more.
Last year, for the fourth consecutive year, we broke our record for funds raised as we finally crossed the $20,000 mark. We have super high hopes and are extremely excited about year six. Your support and donations have been a huge part of the event the first five years.
People will be able to donate by calling KFAN at 651-989-5326 or 1-800-320-5326. There will also be some unbelievable auction items available on winningcause.org, such as the opportunity to go golfing with Vikings Hall of Fame football player John Randle.
The show is ultimately about raising money and awareness for the Lupus Foundation of Minnesota. However, for those of you who have listened over the first five years, you’ll know it really is an opportunity for all of us at KFAN to just jump on the radio and have a bunch of fun. It’s easily my favorite day of my radio year.
This year we really need all of your help … not only in terms of donations, but in getting the word out. This April 20th and 21st, make sure you email, Facebook and tweet all of your friends and family to let them know what we’re doing. Let’s make this show the biggest one yet. With all of your help, I have no doubt that we will. You will be able to send people to winningcause.org, lupusmn.org or kfan.com. You can also follow KFAN on Twitter, @KFAN1003, or find us on Facebook. We will be updating guest schedules, contests, auction items and everything else related to the show the entire 24 hours. (LFM will have Facebook and Twitter updates as well.)
I’m extremely proud and excited to be hosting this again and I hope you all join in as well. Thanks for all the support. I know people affected by lupus greatly appreciate it.
