4th Annual Have A Heart for Doey’s House Radio-thon Set for Feb. 11
Put your dial on WJEJ 1240 AM on Saturday, Feb. 11th for the 4th Annual Have A Heart for Doey’s House Radio-thon. The proceeds will support the construction of Doey’s House. Volunteers and employees of HWC will man the phones from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and callers can make pledges for this vital project.
“We thank WJEJ who initiated the tradition of the Radio-thon on the weekend closest to Valentine’s Day,” stated Karen Giffin, Senior Director of Development, Community and Public Relations. “Since the radio station was established in 1932, it has made community involvement its hallmark. We are proud that they support HWC and Doey’s House, and that WJEJ continues to be supportive of Washington County.”
Giffin went on to explain that Hospice of Washington County is also honored to have Lou Scally host this important event. “Lou Scally has been a supporter of Doey’s House since the start of the project, and because of his passion for the project and WJEJ’s commitment this event has grown each year.”
“Many people have heard about the extraordinary services that Hospice of Washington County provides to patients and their families for end-of-life care,” stated Lou Scally of WJEJ Radio Station. “With Doey’s House, HWC can now help patients that have unmanaged pain and symptoms and can no longer stay at home. Right now, those who need or want a hospice house have to leave the county.”
In addition to helping spread the word about what services will be offered at Doey’s House, the radio station is also hoping listeners across the community will offer financial support during the four-hour radio-thon and assist in the capital/endowment campaign.
The first 25 individuals to pledge $250 or more will receive a “Doey’s House” Cutout, and the first 25 callers will receive a WJEJ Cookbook. Other prizes include gift certificates from Gordon’s Grocery, Grease Monkey and other great businesses. More prizes will be announced during the radio-thon. Special guests answering the phones and speaking on air include Doey’s House Leadership Team Co-Chair Neal Glessner and Washington County Commissioner Jeff Cline. Chic-Fil-A is donating lunch for the volunteers and visitors who participate at the Have A Heart for Doey’s House Radio-thon.
Individuals can make a pledge by calling in on February 11th to 301-739-2323 or 1-800-265-0057; or you can stop by the station with your donation at 1135 Haven Road in Hagerstown. Individuals can also listen online at wjejradio.com
