Calling all guitar players! You can be part of the annual “Guitar Jam” to raise money for the Children’s Leukemia Foundation of Michigan during the 28-hour Radiothon hosted by Classic Rock WCSX-FM 94.7 morning hosts JJ & Lynne.
Make plans to bring a $5 donation, your guitar and small amp to Center Court in Oakland Mall Thursday, January 25th at 8pm for a rousing rendition of Cream's Classic Rock anthem “Sunshine of Your Love.” This musical fundraising event will be broadcast live on WCSX. Each guitar player who participates will receive a limited edition Guitar Jam All Access lanyard.
The more guitar players that show, the more money that can be raised for Children’s Leukemia Foundation of Michigan.
CLF of Michigan is a statewide organization that provides information, financial assistance and support for adults and children affected by leukemia, lymphoma, and other related blood disorders. The JJ & Lynne’s 28 Hour Radiothon is one of the major sources of revenue for the foundation. This long running fundraiser has to date raised over raised $2,500,000 for the Children's Leukemia Foundation of Michigan.
