Vets of Valor Radiothon Surpasses Goal

The Vets of Valor Radiothon was an overwhelming success this year. The final total has yet to come but as of Monday, November 13, the total raised was $111,684, 11.5% above the goal of $100,000.
There are many people to thank this year, our title sponsors, 93.3 KIOA for organizing the event with Maxwell and Amy spending 12 hours on air, Prairie Meadows for providing the space and a major donation at the end of the day and First Class Community Credit Union and Principle Financial Group volunteers that manned the phones throughout the day.

Hourly sponsors throughout the day included Dr. Eugene Cherney of Heartland Plastic Surgery, Green Family Flooring, Casey's General Stores, First Class Community Credit Union, Wrench N Go and Prairie Meadows.

We were able to tell a number of stories on air of veterans and families that we have helped with the proceeds from this radiothon in past years. There are many more stories and there will be many more now that the fund has been replenished for another year. The generosity of people across the country makes that help possible.
