Kudos to CUMULUS Country WKHX (KICKS 101.5)/ATLANTA on raising $6,500 for critically injured U.S. ARMY veteran CHRISTOPHER SPARKMAN. SPARKMAN was gravely injured last year when a suicidal gunman opened fire at the FED EX store where SPARKMAN had been working as a security guard. Since then, he has had over 30 surgeries and he and his wife, JAMIE LYNN, are facing huge medical bills.
To help the family with these medical expenses, KICKS 101.5 partnered with ATLANTA area T. MAC restaurants on THURSDAY, APRIL 2nd. Each location had a drop box placed at the front for patrons to drop their receipts. Ten percent of all receipts collected will provide the funds being given to the SPARKMAN's.
"Thanks to CADILLAC JACK and TUG who spent a good chunk of their day onsite and on the air," said WKHX PD GREG FREY. "Also, kudos to JENN FALLIN, MATT JONES, LIZ WEBER and DOUG SARGENT for making this whole thing possible. Lastly, a big thanks to JOYCE MURRAY who first made us aware of the SPARKMAN’s and their struggles. In the end, a family is helped by our loyal listeners and a great client."
