It's been a busy week for all of the area's sports journalists covering the All Star game. Putting a great cap on the week, sports radio WDFN-AM's 8th Annual Stoney & Wojo Radiothon for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society will take place starting at 3pm tomorrow afternoon (Thursday, July 14) and run 'til 7pm on Friday O'Tooles in Novi.
Afternoon drive hosts Stoney & Wojo will be broadcasting live for 28 hours straight to raise money and awareness for Leukemia & Lymphoma research. Listeners will be able to bid on hourly and run-of-show auction items or simply make a donation by calling in to (866) 326-1130. Folks wishing to view the proceedings in person will enjoy games and activities including volleyball, XBOX and Golden Tee, a dunk tank, and much more. During the 28 hour event, Stoney and Wojo will be joined by some of the biggest names in local and national sports.
Each year, WDFN and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society team up to fight cancer by providing wonderful items that people can bid on but also offer something maybe even more invaluable... laughter. This year's bid items include electronics, signed memorabilia, VIP packages, hotel accommodations, airfare, jewelry, dinner packages, golf, and a hot tub. Listeners will also be able to bid $50 in order to hear favorite WDFN parodies and bits.
Stoney and Wojo, heard weekdays between 3 and 6pm, raised over $150,000 during last year's Radiothon and this year, hope to exceed the $1 million mark in accumulated donations over its 8-year history.
It's a great cause worthy of your support.
