As we all know, New Jersey was heavily hit by Hurricane Sandy. Recently, we announced that the Starland Ballroom (located in Sayreville, New Jersey) will be shut down until Spring of 2013 due to the amount of damage that the venue suffered (details HERE). Thankfully, the people of New Jersey are coming together and helping each other out.
Joining the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts is 89.5FM WSOU, who will be hosting a radio-thon in order to collect donations. The radio-thon will take place TOMORROW (Friday, November 30th). It will kick off at 6AM and will run until midnight. They will be DJing regular rotation music and will be taking breaks to ask for donations. Listeners will be able to call up and pledge various amounts of money. If a listener pledges $25+, he/she will be mailed a WSOU prize pack (contains WSOU stickers, pens, bottle openers and a random CD). If the pledge amount is $50+ the listener will receive a special Hurricane Sandy relief t-shift they are making specifically for the occasion and the prize pack as well.
If the donation is $100+ the listener will receive a WSOU Hoodie, the shirt, and the prize pack. They will also be running raffles all day. Raffle tickets can be purchased separately at $25 each. Some of the prizes being raffled are a signed Slipknot poster (includes Paul Gray), a 3 Inches of Blood snowboard and a framed drum head signed by all members of Five Finger Death Punch. There are also many other signed pieces of memorabilia to be given away. Their goal is to raise $8950 by the end of the day. They will also have a slew of guest DJs throughout the day.
Save the date: Friday, November 30th on WSOU 89.5 FM!
