JONES RADIO NETWORKS syndicated host NEAL BOORTZ' wife DONNA held a fundraiser for the WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT that raised over $70,000 for the non-profit organization. The AUGUST 9th event at ATLANTA's RAVINIA CLUB was aided by BOORTZ staffers BELINDA SKELTON, ROYAL MARSHALL and CRISTINA GONZALEZ.
"Every year we participate in an event where a club member serves as 'bartender' and some of the proceeds from the drinks and tips go toward that member's charity," said NEAL BOORTZ. "The hundreds of people who showed up to bid on the items donated by my wonderful advertisers and area businesses really got into it. DONNA told me that she hoped to raise at least $25,000. When the total was announced, she broke into tears."
Added DONNA, "Every person there, no matter how they might feel about the war, left knowing they had done something to help the men and woman who have sacrificed so much for our country."
