The WMGK-FM host raised over $143,000 with his 13th Annual John DeBella Veterans Radiothon which supports local vets via the Veterans Multi-Service Center (VMC). The event took place on Friday, June 15 at the National Constitution Center. The VMC’s mission is to provide services, programs, opportunities and advancement to veterans. Over the past decade, the station has raised over one million dollars to support vets in need.
John Fogerty, former leader of Creedence Clearwater Revival, called the radio station to voice his support of the Radiothon. In addition, the Eagles, Yes, Jimmy Buffett, Billy Joel, Phil Collins and Def Leppard’s Rick Allen donated items that were used in a series of eBay auctions that occurred in conjunction with the Radiothon.
WMGK advertisers also showed their generosity.
