FRIDAY, AUGUST 2nd will be dedicated as KIDD KRADDICK KIDD’S KIDS DAY, honoring the recently departed morning star KIDD KRADDICK (NET NEWS, 7/27). This special proclamation culminates a weeklong on air celebration of KIDD’s life following his passing last weekend. Longtime listeners will be able to honor KIDD’s legacy by contributing to his charity KIDD’s Kids, built to send chronically ill and physically challenged children to WALT DISNEY WORLD.
"KIDD devoted his life to making people smile every morning, and for 21 years his foundation has been dedicated to bringing joy to thousands of chronically and terminally ill children," CCM+E SVP/Operations KELLY KIBLER said. "KIDD died doing what he loved, and his final day was spent selflessly focused on those special children that meant the world to him."
In addition to taking donations, the cities of DALLAS, FORT WORTH, ARLINGTON, ALLEN, FLOWER MOUND, EULESS, BEDFORD, GRAPEVINE, NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, ADDISON, COPPELL, DENTON, MANSFIELD, SOUTHLAKE, PLANO, FRISCO, GRAND PRAIRIE, MCKINNEY, CARROLLTON, WEATHERFORD, RICHARDSON, IRVING, GARLAND and MESQUITE have made official proclamations to designate FRIDAY, AUGUST 2nd as KIDD KRADDICK Kidd’s Kids Day.
The family is planning a public memorial service and will announce details in the upcoming days.
