Country Stars Join For St. Jude’s

March 10, 2010

For the sixth consecutive year, Country 102.5 and Jordan’s Furniture are teaming up for Country 102.5’s annual Country Cares for St. Jude Kids Radiothon.  This year’s Radiothon will take place Thursday, March 12th and Friday, March 13th LIVE from Jordan’s Furniture in Reading.  Country 102.5 will be broadcasting live from 6am-7pm on Thursday, March 12th and from 6am-9pm on Friday, March 13th, raising much needed funds for the kids at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  St. Jude is a world leader in catastrophic illness in children.  St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility anywhere.  Discoveries made there are shared with hospitals worldwide and right here in New England.

Through emotional family stories and Country 102.5 personality pleas, Country 102.5 listeners and Jordan’s Furniture customers are encouraged to become a St. Jude “Partners In Hope,” donating $30 per month for a year.  Additionally, country artists such as The Band Perry, Steel Magnolia, Easton Corbin and Danny Gokey will perform live attracting even more fans and donors to the store.

“The Country 102.5 staff is extremely proud of the generosity of the country music audience in and around Boston,” says Country 102.5 Program Director Mike Brophey.  “To raise nearly 6 million dollars since inception is truly remarkable.”
