DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Dayton’s music station from the 80s to now, MIX 107.7, held the 14th annual radiothon on Thursday.
During the radiothon alone, they brought in more than $20,000 to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities Dayton. With sponsorships and other donations, the total topped $60,000.
On Thursday, Dec. 8 from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Jeff, Kristi and Dave, hosts of the MIX Morning Show, broadcasted live from the event.
“We love doing our radio show together every morning, but it’s really nice to be able to come out here,” says Jeff Stevens, MIX Morning Show Host and Senior VP of Programming.
Money raised goes directly toward families in the care of RMHC Dayton.
“They come in. They have a clean, safe space to stay the night. They’re close to the care. They can go across the street,” says Teresa Engle, Marketing and Communications Director of RMHC Dayton. “Thinking about what they need, and it’s tailored to every individual patient. And it’s a beautiful thing.”
Donors that gave $107 or more had a chance to win a pair of tickets to see Taylor Swift in Cincinnati in 2023!
The radiothon was presented by Wright-Patt Credit Union.
