MAVERICK MEDIA/SANTA ROSA, CA teamed up with BLOOD CENTERS OF THE PACIFIC to honor the victims and injured in last week's BOSTON bombings by holding a "BLOOD DRIVE FOR BOSTON.
MAVERICK stations Hot AC KMHX (MIX 104.9), Country KFGY (FROGGY 92.9), Classic Rock KVRV (97.7 THE RIVER), Top 40 KHTH (HOT 101.7), and News/Talk KSRO-A encouraged listeners to donate blood and sign a card that will be sent to the city of BOSTON. Close to 100 donors showed up to give blood for the cause.
According to a spokesperson for BLOOD CENTERS OF THE PACIFIC, "Your efforts will have a long lasting impact. A number of donors stated they had not given in years, but heard the announcement on the radio and decided to come on down! The units collected will impact multiple patients and their families. In addition to supporting your local blood bank, BOSTON will feel your warmth with the wonderful cards."
As previously mentioned on ALL ACCESS (NET NEWS 4/10), SONOMA MEDIA GROUP, LLC is currently in the process of buying the MAVERICK MEDIA/SANTA ROSA cluster with the deal expected to close on WEDNESDAY MAY 1st.
