Friday, February 24th will mark the Silver Anniversary of the most successful series of Radiothons in Detroit radio. Cumulus' News/Talk WJR AM 760 will take their second spin broadcasting the Salvation Army's Bed & Bread Club® Radiothon from 6 a.m. - 10 p.m. in front of a live audience from the Center Court of Oakland Mall in Troy.
This year, to make it extra special, Dick Purtan is scheduled to return to co-host the event with WJR's Paul W. Smith, Frank Beckmann and Mitch Albom.
Contributions help the Salvation Army Bed & Bread program serve approximately 5,000 meals each day to children, adults, and seniors in the Detroit area. In addition, 570 men, women, and children are sheltered by The Salvation Army's Bed & Bread program every day and night of the year.
Donors are encouraged to become members of the Bed & Bread Club® by making a donation of $120- either all at once or in monthly increments of $10 a month. Make a donation of $240 or more, and you'll receive this year's Bed & Bread Club® incentive, which will be announced during the event.
