WLAV Leading 15th Annual Food Drive
March 25, 2015 at 11:05 AM (PT)
CUMULUS MEDIA Classic Rock WLAV/GRAND RAPIDS morning host TONY GATES will lead the 15th annual MICHIGAN SPORTSMEN AGAINST HUNGER/SPORT SHOW FOOD DRIVE on THURSDAY, MARCH 19th. GATES is asking listeners to “Go Fish” in their cupboards or pantry and help MSAH feed the hungry in WEST MICHIGAN.
Those who bring six boxes or cans (4 pounds minimum) or more of non-perishable food items to DEVOS PLACE will receive a pass for free admission to the ULTIMATE SPORT SHOW for that day only. Volunteers from area sportsmen’s clubs will collect the food and donate it to GOD’S KITCHEN and other WEST MICHIGAN distribution centers for people in need.
Beginning at 6a, GATES will broadcast all day until 7p from an RV parked in front of DEVOS PLACE in downtown GRAND RAPIDS. Some donors, in a hurry to get to work, drop off sacks of food but don’t have time to accept the free pass to the show.
“This is one of MICHIGAN’s largest single-day food drives and it annually provides nutritious and needed food for those less fortunate,” said BEN NEILSEN, event manager for sport show. “So many sportsmen and women contribute each year that we literally give away the gate proceeds that night. We’re happy to do it and delighted that TONY GATES will lead the charge again this year.”
The ULTIMATE SPORT SHOW runs through SUNDAY, MARCH 22nd. For more information, go to: www.ultimatesportshow.com.
