WHTP/Tampa's Drew Garabo Hosts Party For Cancer-Stricken Children
June 3, 2016 at 3:38 PM (PT)
COX MEDIA GROUP Talk WHTP (102.5 THE BONE)/TAMPA BAY afternoon host DREW GARABO will throw a party for some children battling cancer this SATURDAY, JUNE 4th from 11a to 12:30p at the BONE STUDIOS. He will give an iPAD to a dozen afflicted kids, treat them to lunch from CHICK-FIL-A and give away goody bags. There will also be an appearance by TAMPA BAY mascots CAPTAIN FEAR, RAYMOND, THUNDERBUG, and ROCKY THE BULL and tours of the radio station.
GARABO is filling the void left when fellow radio personality JAYDE DONOVAN left the market. "I felt this was a great cause to undertake and continue,” DREW said. “Children should have to worry about what video game they want to play, or how to ace a test, not about fighting for their life. I’m hoping that we can help them keep their mind occupied at such a challenging time.”
Listeners and clients were encouraged to donate to the GIVE HOPE FOUNDATION which helps secure the iPADS. WHPT morning host MIKE CALTA got in on the action as well, helping raise over $13,000 through his show.
