ALPHA MEDIA Sports WKRS (ESPN DEPORTES 1220 AM)/WAUKEGAN-KENOSHA, IL-WI delivered over 200 toys to children during DIA DE LOS REYES MAGOS (THREE KINGS DAY), JANUARY 6th. at THE FIELD HOUSE, SPORTS, FITNESS AND AQUATIC CENTER.
With great support from local sponsors including, the Mayor, City Clerk Of WAUKEGAN, local businesses leaders, colleagues, and volunteers, the event was a tremendous success for many families. BALLET FOLKLORICAO TAYHUA was on hand to entertain with traditional dances of the MEXICAN culture.
ALPHA MEDIA/WAUKEGAN-KENOSHA Market Manager KARL WERTZLER commented, “My thanks to PD PATRICIA MARTINEZ, ESPN DEPORTES 1220 staff members and our sponsors and volunteers who made this another successful event. I am thrilled we were able to assist over 200 families in the LATINO community during this celebration.”
“The look of joy, and excitement on all the children’s faces, and the hope that a child who may not have received any toys this holiday season will, is the driving force to continue expanding this annual event, year after year," WRKS PD MARTINEZ said. "In addition to the traditional culinary delights of the champurrado, ponche, sweet tamales and, of course, the rosca de reyes, not only were their hearts filled, but so were their bellies.”
