Christmas Wish is a Wrap

The 36th annual WBKR-WOMI Christmas Wish program has ended. Thank you for contributing so much, adopting letters, volunteering long hours of work or just by staying interested. This year we received 1264 letters of request. And, only 100 were not granted. Usually there are many more. Those not granted are due to being out of our service area such as California; are from a family already receiving assistance or we were not able to validate the recipient.

EVES 5th Graders Give To Christmas Wish [VIDEO]

Mrs. Davis' 5th grade class at East View Elementary decided to do things a little differently this year. Instead of giving presents to each other, they wanted to donate them to the children at Christmas Wish. What a great group of 10 and 11 year olds! Office Manager Roxianne's daughter Cydney is in the class, so we decided to take the WBKR truck, the BKR bear and us to the school and have them present their presents!

These kids are amazing and they brought in over 35 toys! They even wrapped the gifts themselves, check it out!

Christmas Wish Tree on Display at Gaylord’s Hall of Trees

Gaylord Opryland Resort continues its tradition that is the Hall of Trees.  Each year, the hotel invites non-profit agencies to decorate Christmas trees that are put up for auction during the hotel's "A Country Christmas" celebration.  The charities actually get to keep the money their trees generate.  So, for the second year in a row, we have a Christmas Wish tree on display in Nashville.  Check this out!

Christmas Wish Always Reminds Me To Be Thankful

Every year I broadcast live from our Christmas Wish office and this year is no different. The office opened on Monday in Towne Square Mall, but I won't be over there until this coming Monday.

Yesterday, Chad called and asked me to go over to the office when I got off the air and help investigate letters. Of course I said "Sure!", but was thinking "Ugh, I'd rather not." Yep, you know what's coming next.... It doesn't take too many phone calls to realize just how lucky and blessed we all are.

Christmas Wish Fundraiser THIS Saturday Night at Lourdes

Donnie "Sax" Sanders, Dallas Roberts and 2 Miles Back!  Lots of entertainment.  Lots of great food!  And a huge silent auction to benefit the WBKR/WOMI Telecom Pioneers Christmas Wish program, which just kicked off its 36th year of ensuring that every child in the tri-state gets a visit from Santa!  The folks at CRS One Source came to us a couple of months ago with a desire to "give back" to the community . . . specifically by helping raise money for Christmas Wish.  And they're doing it in style THIS WEEKEND.  This morning, the organizers stopped by the WBKR Waking Crew to give us all the details about Saturday's big event.  LISTEN!
