ALPHA BROADCASTING Country KUPL/PORTLAND is inviting their listeners to gather at PIONEER COURTHOUSE SQUARE, tomorrow (5/12), at 7:30p (PT), to pay tribute to the service men & women whose lives were lost in the IRAQ and AFGHANISTAN wars. The vigil will include a reading of the names of fallen soldiers from OREGON and WASHINGTON, by various dignitaries from the area.
“With the recent event of OSAMA BIN LADEN’s death and the upcoming 10 year anniversary of 9/11 it seems like the right time to honor those who have given their lives in the name of freedom,”said Director of Music Programming SCOTT MAHALICK. “Ever since the news broke, our listeners have been calling in to the station to express their feelings and we thought that organizing an event was the appropriate way to pay homage to these fallen heroes.”
Local Country artist KURT VAN METER will also perform during the tribute. Reach out to SCOTT MAHALICK at firstname.lastname@example.org.
