Knottsville Boy Sells T-Shirts for St. Jude

Gavin Howard has become a staple of the annual WBKR/Poole's Pharmacy Care St. Jude Radiothon.  His involvement started a couple of years ago when Jaclyn and I got a call during the event and were told that Gavin wanted to stop the studio and donate all of his birthday money to the kids of St. Jude.  Well, that tradition continues and last year Gavin donated over $300!  And this year, the Knottsville youngster plans to donate even more money because he is selling t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies!
