WCEN's Joby Phillips To Shave Head For St. Jude
February 25, 2013 at 6:54 AM (PT)
NEXTMEDIA Country WCEN (94.5 THE MOOSE)/ SAGINAW PD/afternoon host JOBY PHILLIPS will be sporting a new ‘do next month, as he has agreed to shave his head for charity.
PHILLIPS tells ALL ACCESS that during their recent COUNTRY CARES FOR ST. JUDE KIDS radiothon, he upped the ante by offering to go bald in an attempt to drive more donations. Within those 2 final hours, listeners donated $28,000 as a result.
In total, WCEN raised $70,152 this year, which puts them within only $13,000 of hitting the $1 million mark throughout the station’s 10 year history of working with ST JUDE.
JOBY will shave his locks on FRIDAY, MARCH 29th during a celebrity wait staff event at a local restaurant- another ST. JUDE fundraiser.
Additionally, WCEN morning personality, JODI K, will travel to NASHVILLE to run in the ST. JUDE COUNTRY MUSIC MARATHON to raise more money for ST. JUDE on behalf of the station, on SATURDAY, APRIL 27th.
