For the sixth year in a row, AC WZSR (STAR 105.5)/CHICAGO teamed up with Turning Point of MCHENRY COUNTY to raise awareness and funds to confront domestic violence in the area. For 36 hours the entire air staff was live at SAM'S CLUB in CRYSTAL LAKE, IL, spotlighting what is such an important resource for women and children affected by domestic violence, where they raised over $72,000 from donations and almost $6,000 in much-needed office supplies.
Throughout the marathon, donations were taken on-site, over the phone, and online. Star 105.5, along with their Turning Point counterparts, provided emotional interviews while showing listeners that, victims of domestic violence can make a journey back to health and happiness. With both individual and commercial donations this year was another success.
The total raised for Turning Point over the past six years has surpassed $300,000.
