Kudos go out to CLEAR CHANNEL Modern AC KYSR (STAR 98.7)/LOS ANGELES, for being honored by the CITY OF HOPE Cancer Center with the prestigious "Ambassador of Hope" award. The charity will present the award to the station at TONIGHT’s (MONDAY, OCT. 29th) third annual STAR 98.7 "LOUNGE FOR LIFE" benefit concert at THE WILTERN THEATRE. The award recognizes STAR 98.7’s ongoing fundraising commitment on behalf of CITY OF HOPE’s cancer research programs.
Receiving the award is STAR 98.7 GM CRAIG ROSSI, who dedicated the award to the audience, stating "without your generous support we could not present a show like this and raise these funds for CITY OF HOPE -- and it’s important because these people are making a real difference/ Seven of the top 10 cancer drugs used today by cancer patients worldwide were developed at CITY OF HOPE."
Additional funds are being raised through an online auction of more than 30 unique artist and celebrity memorabilia items at www.Star987.com, keyword "Auction." All auction proceeds will go directly to CITY OF HOPE. For more information on CITY OF HOPE cancer research and treatment, please visit www.CityofHope.org.
