Local Artist Paints Danny Thomas for St. Jude Radiothon!

This year, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital celebrates its 50th anniversary.  It was 1962 that Danny Thomas’ dream of creating an institution to battle catastrophic childhood illnesses came true.  And, this week on The Country Station, we are continuing our pledge to help raise money for St. Jude so that “no child may die in the dawn of life.”  And, we are raising money in a variety of ways above and beyond our 26-hour radiothon!  In fact, last night, at our 2nd annual ‘Denim and Diamonds’ concert fundraiser, local artist Aaron Kizer joined us to unveil an exciting piece of artwork we are auctioning for the hospital!  It’s currently on Ebay and we want you (and everyone) to check it out!

To view our Ebay auction of this one-of-a-kind artwork, CLICK HERE!

And, if you wanna see something REALLY cool, watch the YouTube link below.  It’s a time-lapse video of Aaron Kizer painting Danny Thomas!  This is AMAZING!!!
