John Boy & Billy, The Half-Million Men

Kudos to PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS’ syndicated hosts JOHN BOY AND BILLY, who have reached a fundraising milestone of more than $550,000 in support of the Operation USO Care Package program, which allows the public to support AMERICAN men and women in uniform. With only a couple weeks left in 2007, their fundraising efforts have totaled $88,900 for this year alone.
The hosts has worked with the USO since 2003, and each year have increased donations by inviting soldiers, veterans and USO representatives as guests of the radio program to spread the word about the USO’s work.
By visiting www.thebigshow.com, supporters can make a $25 donation to the USO, which allows them to sponsor a care package full of personal, requested supplies that will be delivered to deployed service men and women. USO care package donors are also encouraged to include a personal note to the recipient.
