WAUKEGAN, IL, January 13, 2017 – Alpha Media, Waukegan-Kenosha station, ESPN Deportes 1220 AM (WKRS) delivered joy to children during Dia de Los Reyes Magos (Three Kings Day). On January 6th, WKRS delivered over 200 toys during the celebration held at The Field House, Sports, Fitness, and Aquatic Center.

With great support from local sponsors including, the Mayor, City Clerk of Waukegan, local businesses leaders, colleagues, and volunteers, the event was a tremendous success for many families. Ballet Folklorico Tayhua delighted the crowd with beautiful traditional dances of the Mexican culture.

Alpha Media, Waukegan-Kenosha Market Manager, Karl Wertzler commented on the announcement, “My thanks to PD-Patricia Martinez, ESPN Deportes 1220 staff members and our sponsors and volunteers who made this another successful event. I am thrilled we were able to assist over 200 families in the Latino community during this celebration.”

“The look of joy, and excitement on all the children’s faces, and the hope that a child who may not have received any toys this holiday season will, is the driving force to continue expanding this annual event, year after year. In addition to the traditional culinary delights of the Champurrado, Ponche, Sweet Tamales, and of course the Rosca de Reyes, not only were their hearts filled, but so were their bellies,” remarked Patricia Martinez, WKRS Program Director.
