WRAN groovy 97.3 and the Taylorville Kiwanis Club, on Tuesday held its annual Radiothon to raise money for local Kiwanis projects for children and youth.
Kiwanis member Martin Vota chaired the Radiothon Committee, securing $2700 in sponsorships from local businesses for the club to purchase the day of broadcasting.
Kiwanis members then delivered live commercials for those sponsors, in the 7-hour broadcast. Kiwanis member and Miller Media Group president Randal J. Miller emceed the day-long event.
During the Radiothon, Miller presented Kiwanis president Brad Davis with a check from WRAN for half of the total sponsorship sales, back to the Kiwanis Club for local Kiwanis projects, which include Kiwanis Park, Coats for Kids, high school and YMCA scholarships.
The Taylorville Kiwanis Club is part of global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. Weekly meetings are held Tuesdays at noon at the Taylorville Moose Lodge. For information on the club, go to taylorvillekiwanis.com.
