On Friday, June 16th, Country WYCD FM's (99.5) Grunwald from the Dr. Don Morning Show headed to the Amazon Jungle in South America to help raise money for Haven of Oakland County. David Hall of Rock Financial offered to send 99.5 WYCD'S Grunwald to several exotic locations with a one-way ticket. WYCD listeners then voted via the station's web site on where to send him. Grunwald will start in Manaus Brazil and then have to beg, borrow, cheat his way back home in time for his air-shift on Friday June 23rd.
For every mile traveled by Grunwald, Haven of Oakland County receives $1.00. So if he travels 3,000 miles, Haven receives $3000 dollars…Courtesy of David Hall & Rock Financial. Grunwald will be equipped with $99.50 in his pocket, a phone & a digital camera so he can document his travels & the listeners can keep track also.
Among many of the charities that Grunwald donates his time for, Haven of Oakland County holds a special place, and is why he is attempting this journey. The sole beneficiary of this great event, Haven of Oakland County is a non Profit organization that helps rid households & the community of violence.
