December 4, 2012 at 12:01 PM (PT)
ENTERCOM Active Rock WAAF/BOSTON is hosting a fundraising event, “WAAF’s RISE UP AGAINST HUNGER” today through this THURSDAY, DECEMBER 6th. WAAF morning on-air personalities LB and SPAZ will ‘Rise Up’ on boom cranes, where they will live on a platform suspended high in the sky for three full days in an effort to raise funds for The GREATER BOSTON, WORCESTER COUNTY and NEW HAMPSHIRE FOOD BANKS.
For the past 20 years, the station’s personalities have enlisted themselves in various physically challenging stunts in an effort to engage listeners to support area food banks. Listeners are encouraged to visit LB and SPAZ during the three days they are hanging in the sky and make a donation to “WAAF’s RISE UP AGAINST HUNGER” campaign.
WAAF PD RON VALERI says “LB and SPAZ will be homeless outside in the cold and high in the air for three straight days to raise awareness about hunger. We’re asking our listeners to Rise Up Against Hunger with them, because they can’t come down until donations go UP!”
To raise additional funds for the food banks, WAAF morning personality GREG HILL will stay on WAAF’s airways around the clock for the entire three days, DECEMBER 4th-6th, 2012, encouraging listeners to show their support for the cause.Complete details, including information on donating to “WAAF’s RISE UP AGAINST HUNGER” are available on the station’s website, www.waaf.com/riseup.
