The Miller Media Group on Saturday, sponsored a drive-thru donation day for the March of Dimes March for Babies.  Team captain Sheri Miller and several members of her team, set up a tent in front of the Miller Media Group studios in Taylorville, and broadcast an appeal for donations on all 5 radio stations.  The community responded, donating some 630-dollars in their 5 hours of fund-raising on Saturday.

Company president Randal J. Miller anchored the live broadcast, and talked with Sheri about where the money raised Saturday goes.

Sheri’s daughter Alexis died 40 minutes after being born in April 2011, due to a birth defect which prevented her lungs from developing properly.

Sheri’s team goal this year is to raise some 6-thousand dollars to benefit the March of Dimes, and with Saturday’s drive-thru donation day, her total is now well over 2-thousand dollars.  The March for Babies takes place May 18th at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield.  You can donate to Sheri’s team at teamprincessalexis-dot-com.  All monies raised go directly to the March of Dimes to help prevent birth defects.
