WCSX’s Stone Soup Benefits Children’s Miracle Network
August 7, 2012
The 94.7 WCSX Stone Soup Boss 5.0 Project is something you can only do in Detroit. Based on the fable of “Stone Soup” – where everyone pitches in and you wind up with something wonderful, this project is a reflection of the automotive spirit and hard working nature of Detroit.
This year’s 1969 Mustang will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network at Beaumont Hospital – raffle tickets are $10.00 each (with every penny going to the charity). And listeners are a part of this — from voting on the car, choosing the paint color and maybe adopting a part.
The Stone Soup Boss 5.0 is more than a 575 horsepower Mustang – it’s more than a one of kind car – it’s what they do in the Motor City.
Support for the project has come from all across the United States, including Autoweek Magazine editor K.C. Crain, who dedicated space on the www.autoweek.com website to promote ticket sales.
The car will be painted candy apple red (as chosen by listeners) and the final assembly began in the spring with a completion date scheduled in late July. A show car of this quality would normally take 12-18 months to complete. The WCSX team is doing it in less than six months!
Raffle tickets are still available for only $10 and are available online at www.wcsx.com.
