“Hope for the Holidays” brought Cheer and Hope this Holiday

 

Evanov Radio Group’s nine-hour  radiothon  yielded tons of  food items and  canned goods   to support the work of  Winnipeg Harvest.

“Hope for the Holidays” was  held  and live streamed on  Dec 9, 2017 at Grant Park Shopping Centre which was a joint fundraising effort of  Energy 106, Hot 100.5 and CKJS 810AM which includes Radio Dhamaal.

 

 

Hundreds came down to share canned goods and other food items, donated cash (or cheque)  with  executive director Kate Brenner and other volunteer friends from  Winnipeg Harvest  personally  accepting donations.  Several business owners also made pledges to donate in cash and/or kind.

 

 

 

Kate said  items and  money donations  are very crucial  especially in  this season   to help feed thousands of  needy families in the list who rely on food banks for support.

 

Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman and Chief of Police Danny Smyth were the very first supporters who came down to extend the long table of generosity this holiday season.

 

 

Laurel Cetkovski of Winnipeg Harvest said  the one day event  raised about  $5,671.30  and  collected a total of 1386 pounds of food. Excluded in the count are the actual donations from sponsors and  other supporters which are still to be counted,  weighed and updated. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every year,   it has been a tradition of  the three stations  of  Evanov Radio Group to team up and work together  to choose a charity and raise funds for their cause as a way to observe the celebrate the spirit  of giving and sharing.

This year, our team worked with   Winnipeg Harvest with the aim to  help contribute to fight hunger and feed hope in Manitoba.

 

 

 

This event was made possible thru  the support of  Winnipeg Kia  and  Grant park Shopping Centre.  Thank you also  David’s Tea, Tim Hortons and Red River Coop and   EQ3  for providing our lovely comfy couch for our live broadcast which we raffled  out during the day.

To everyone who came and supported HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS— maraming salamat po.  Your donation makes a big difference!

To all our friends, families and listeners, HAPPY HOLIDAYS from your friends at CKJS 810AM and Radio Dhamaal,  Energy 106 and Hot 100.5.
