Donate 2 Help raises more than $100,000

WBAY and Woodward Radio joined together Thursday for a daylong "mediathon" to raise money for the American Red Cross.

Bill and Cami hold up the final tally

With a $35,000 matching donation from J.J. Keller Foundation, our one-day total is:

$102,532 !

The total doesn't include in-person donations made at Community First Credit Union or donations made directly to the American Red Cross as a result of this appeal.

With the devastation from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, Northeast Wisconsin has stepped up to help in a big way! And we thank you!

Every dollar counts!
