23rd Dick Purtan Radiothon wraps with nearly $2.4 million pledged




A nice scene at Oakland Mall in Troy this evening just past 10 o'clock as Dick Purtan and crew put the wraps on their 23rd successful Radiothon to benefit the Salvation Army's Bed and Bread Club in Southeast Michigan. After the final tally of $2,339,440 was announced, Purtan spent several minutes shaking hands and chatting with the standing-room only crowd that had gathered at the mall for the duration of the 16-hour event.

Although the pledge tally fell about $60,000 short of their all-time record, the amount did surpass the $2.2 million raised in 2009.

Purtan is retiring from WOMC FM 104.3 on March 26th and this was his last Radiothon as host.
