We promote charitable events all year long, but most recently we had a 12 hour online auction/radiothon to raise money for the local food pantry.

This year, as in past years, we were live at Blain’s Farm and Fleet in Janesville for 12 hours collecting toys, cash and non-perishable food items for the Salvation Army.
