Y102 St. Judes Benefit - March 30th & 31st

Great event benefiting St. Judes! Several years ago I was contacted by John Lindekugel about this St. Judes event held in Nebraska every year. John and Gail's little boy Levi had been a patient at St. Judes and a HUGE country music fan. For years now country artists have been donating items for auction and along with www.KRNY.com they have been raising lots of money for St. Judes. As you all know, no family has to pay for treatment at St. Judes and so this is a great way to support the amazing work they do there. I hope you will take a few minutes to visit the website, check out the tab about the events, listen all month long from anywhere and certainly donate if you can. Thanks guys!
