CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WHTZ (Z100)/NEW YORK is teaming up with STAND UP TO CANCER, an initiative to raise philanthropic dollars for accelerating ground-breaking cancer research established by a group of media, entertainment and philanthropic leaders, whose lives have all been affected by cancer in significant ways.
ELVIS DURAN, host of ELVIS DURAN AND THE Z100 MORNING SHOW, made the announcement that STAND UP TO CANCER will be the official charity of Z100’s JINGLE BALL 2008. This year’s star-studded event is presented by H&M and will take place on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 12th at MADISON SQUARE GARDEN at 7:30p.
CLEAR CHANNEL SVP/Programming TOM POLEMAN stated, "All of us at Z100 were emotionally touched upon hearing 'Just Stand Up' for the first time. The response from our listeners was equally passionate. So much so, that we felt compelled to do whatever we could to continue the momentum of STAND UP TO CANCER locally in the tri-state area. Z100’s JINGLE BALL is our marquee event and a great way for us to work directly with our listeners to make a difference."
