The Taylorville Kiwanis Club and WRAN groovy 97-point-3 Radio in Taylorville, raised nearly 14-hundred dollars on Tuesday during the Club's annual Radiothon.
Club members, chaired by Martin Vota, sold sponsorships in the day of broadcasting on WRAN, then Kiwanis members read their sponsors' commercials live thru-out the day. WRAN gave half of the gross sponsorship monies sold, back to the club, which netted the club some 13-hundred 87-dollars and 50-cents.
Kiwanis members that were guest announcers on WRAN included Blain Cornwell, Carmeline Skinner, Carol Alexander, Bernie Curvey, Brad Davis, Dick Wamsley, Eric Kahle, Will Perkins, Martin Vota, Judy Prasun, Cathy Coker, Tom Pierce and Duane Stock.
WRAN president Randal J. Miller hosted the 7-hour Kiwanis Radiothon on Tuesday. Proceeds benefit projects for children and youth sponsored by the local Kiwanis Club, including Coats for Kids, Kiwanis Park, high school and Y-M-C-A scholarships.
Weekly meetings are held at noon each Tuesday at the Taylorville Memorial Hospital auditorium. For information on the club, go to taylorvillekiwanis-dot-com.
