KMVN And Dees Award Grants To Los Angeles Area Schools
November 24, 2008 at 8:39 AM (PT)
EMMIS Rhythmic AC KMVN (MOViN 93.9)/LOS ANGELES' RICK DEES IN THE MORNING just wrapped up a contest asking local schools to submit to www.movin939.com in 50 words or less why they need a MOViN SCHOOL MIRACLE at their school and how they would spend a $5,000 school grant from MOViN 93.9.
MOViN 93.9 received hundreds of applications requesting everything from building auditoriums, installing air conditioning, buying picnic tables, removing bee hive infestations, taking field trips and more. The 5 winning schools requested computers, new books, musical instruments, a sound system and projector and assistance for homeless students.
In a press release MOViN 93.9's DEES said, "Every parent I know is constantly selling candles, wrapping paper and cookie dough to help schools raise money. I thought there had to be an easier way for these schools to raise money and I wanted to help local fundraising efforts. The hardest part was narrowing the list and selecting only five winners, especially with so many worthy causes."
RICK DEE’S MOViN MIRACLES is awarded every MONDAY morning. DEES is currently accepting Holiday requests with his MOViN "HOLIDAY" MIRACLES.
