Magic 105.1 “Pays it Forward”

March 18, 2010

How YOU Would Give Away $10,000?

Magic 105.1/WMGC-FM’s Jim Harper and the Magic Morning Show will give away $10,000 in a special contest designed to help a listener’s worthy cause, organization or non-profit organization.

Beginning on Thursday, March 18th 2010, listeners will be encouraged to tune-in every weekday morning between 6a and 9a as WMGC-FM legendary morning personality Jim Harper asks, “How Would YOU Give Away $10,000?” No matter what the cause–from supporting local firefighters, giving back to an animal rescue shelter or helping a school bring back a program that’s been cut, Magic 105.1 FM wants to make a difference in the lives of others.

“An anonymous donor approached us and asked us to give away this $10,000 on the air at Magic 105.1,” said Program Director Lori Bennett. “The caveat was that it could not go to an individual but to a worthy cause, submitted by those who live and work in our community.  It’s taking ‘paying it forward’ to the next level.”

All listeners whose suggestions are chosen each day will be eligible to have their cause posted on in April. Metro Detroiters will later have a chance to vote online to determine which worthy cause wins the $10,000. Magic 105.1 will also be rewarding and recognizing the listener who submitted the winning selection.
