104.9 The Wolf Supports Armed Services with Seats for Soldiers
PEORIA, IL, July 20, 2016 – Alpha Media, Peoria announced that 104.9 The Wolf (WXCL) Program Director, Dr. Chris Michaels and Afternoon Host, Joe Greenwood will be saving “Seats for Soldiers” at Dozer Park July 21-22. They will be trying to save EVERY seat in the baseball park for a soldier, while raising money for Hope For The Warriors.
Starting bright and early at 6:00 AM Thursday, July 21st Dr. Chris and Joe will take their seats in section 104 and move seats with every donation made to Hope For The Warriors. They will sit for 36 hours straight and end at 6:00 PM on Friday, July 22nd. The community is invited to come down to Dozer Park Friday at 4:00 PM to sit and show support for the armed services during the last two hours.
Michaels commented on the announcement, “Unfortunately, when a large number of our Armed Forces return home from serving our country they find themselves jobless, sometimes feeling hopeless or struggle with issues such as PTSD. Thirty-six hours is nothing compared to the sacrifice of our men and women in the military. We are eager to team up with Presley’s Outdoors and Renewal by Anderson to help raise money for Hope For The Warriors.”
“As we continue our yearlong celebration of our 10th anniversary, we’re excited to work with 104.9 The Wolf to support the veterans, service members, and military families in our communities. Their commitment to honor our service members reflects their dedication to improving the lives of military families and we are very grateful for their involvement in our mission,” remarked Robin Kelleher, Co-Founder and President of Hope For The Warriors.
