KBEAR 97.1 FM Valentine's Day Radiothon 2012

Make-A-Wish® Montana’s very first KBEAR 97.1 Radiothon with Livin’ Large Larry was a spectacular success, thanks to people of all ages from Billings, MT. The radiothon featured on-air stories from wish kids, donors, and volunteers while entertaining shout-outs and Valentine song requests. After airing for 12 hours on Valentine’s Day, the “sweet” radiothon raised $9,633 and 10,000 airline miles. What a wonderful gift to mark the first anniversary of Billings Make-A-Wish office’s grand opening!

A very big thanks to KBEAR 97.1, Livin’ Large Larry,, Valet Today and all the Make-A-Wish supporters who contributed to this campaign!
