The Taylorville Kiwanis Club, in conjunction with WRAN Solid Gold 98.3 Radio, raised some $1,300 for Kiwanis projects for children and youth, during the 14th Annual WRAN Taylorville Kiwanis Radiothon held on-the-air during the day on Tuesday, August 9th.
Kiwanis members sold sponsorships in the day-long broadcast, then they delivered the sponsor’s radio ads live. WRAN gave half of the sponsorship amount sold, back to the club for local Kiwanis projects for children and youth.
In the 14 years WRAN and the Taylorville Kiwanis Club have held the annual radiothon, between $15,000 and $20,000 has been raised for local Kiwanis projects.
The club was presented its check during the first hour of the program. WRAN president Randal J. Miller, also a member of the Taylorville Kiwanis Club, presented the $1300 check to Kiwanis president Doctor Gregg Fuerstenau.
The Taylorville Kiwanis Club is part of a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. Weekly meetings of the Kiwanis Club are held Tuesdays at noon at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital Auditorium.
