The BONNEVILLE/ST. LOUIS RADIO GROUP, which includes Country WIL, Sports WXOS (101 ESPN) and Adult Hits WARH (106.5 THE ARCH), has been chosen by HEAT UP ST. LOUIS, INC. as the 2010 “Corporate Citizen of the Year.” BONNEVILLE/ST. LOUIS was chosen for their volunteerism and strong on-air support relating to the 20101 HARDEE's annual RISE AND SHINE FOR HEAT UP benefit in the ST. LOUIS metro area, called “Have a Heart, Heat a Home”.
The benefit, held last FEBRUARY 2010, had approximately 400 volunteers serving as guest greeters in more than 60 area MISSOURI and ILLINOIS area restaurants for breakfast. Several BONNEVILLE/ST. LOUIS radio personalities from Country WIL, Sports WXOS (101 ESPN) and Adult Hits WARH (106.5 THE ARCH) served as celebrity greeters during the event. The 2010 effort raised $85,000 area-wide.
JOHN KIJOWSKI, VP/Market Manager for BONNEVILLE/ST. LOUIS RADIO GROUP said: “Everyone at BONNEVILLE/ST. LOUIS is honored to have received this recognition from HEAT UP ST. LOUIS, INC. BONNEVILLE INTERNATIONAL continually strives to be good community partners. Because making a difference in the community is one of our corporate core values, this honor is particularly important to all of us on the BONNEVILLE/ST. LOUIS team.”
ST. LOUIS Mayor FRANCIS SLAY said: “BONNEVILLE/ST. LOUIS RADIO GROUP does a great job spreading awareness of the important service HEAT-UP ST. LOUIS provides. Because of BONNEVILLE's generous contributions to HEAT-UP ST. LOUIS, many people in the ST. LOUIS area have the opportunity to stay warm -- and even more individuals have been encouraged to open up their wallets to give to this important charity. I would like to congratulate BONNEVILLE for being the 2010 ‘Corporate Citizen of the Year’ -- and I hope others share the same spirit of generosity and service."
