Yesterday, here at WBKR/WOMI, we joined the American Red Cross and various other media outlets around the tristate to raise money for victims of Hurricane Florence.  It was a huge success!

According to Theo Boots, Executive Director of the American Red Cross in Evansville, the event raised $25,858!  That's the preliminary final total.  However, as Theo explains, donations were "coming in hot and heavy toward the end due to the tremendous coverage."

Thanks to everyone who chipped in and donated yesterday.  If you didn't get a chance, you can still donate.  Simply text FLORENCE to 90999.  That's a quick and easy way to make a $10 donation that will be added to your cell phone bill.
