AT BAT...for ALS

At Bat for ALS is underway!

99.9 The Fan and 620 The Buzz are staging a radiothon on Thursday…raising money to fight this terrible disease. The cause is barely understood and there’s no cure. It may sound crass, but here’s my simple formula: CASH (for research and patient care) = HOPE.

Raleigh-Durham is the test drive for this ALS project. Later this summer other sports stations will follow our lead in Philly, Minneapolis, LA, Tampa, Denver and DC.

So, tune in and make a pledge. The Bulls will join in with an ALS Awareness Night on Friday and there’s an on-line auction in progress through Sunday.

Click here to check out the auction. It features some incredible sports memorabilia and VIP experiences: a Yankees’ game in the Big Apple, an ACC basketball game at Duke with credentials for Coach K’s post game press conference, a private batting practice on Goodmon Field at the DBAP, Late Night with Roy in the Dean Dome.

…and if that doesn’t float your boat, Debra Morgan is offering a personalized tour of WRAL TV5.

Thanks for your support!
