Thank you to all who supported our first radiothon on WGAN Radio! You can still DONATE TO OUR RADIOTHON and help us serve Maine’s military and their families, all money raised in Maine stays here in Maine! This event was proudly presented by Bill Dodge Auto Group with support from US Cellular who staffed our phone bank.
In just three hours on March 31st, we raised more than $20,000! We need your help to make this happen for Easter Seals Maine, which serves a range of people in Maine from children with special needs to adults needing mental health services and veterans, who will be spotlighted in this radiothon. The first Easter Seals Radiothon in Maine was primarily hosted on Portland Radio Group’s WGAN newsradio (AM 560 and FM 105.5) with added support on 101.9 WPOR, Maine’s #1 Country Station as well as but pulling from the promotional power of all the group’s stations . Each hour was packed with celebrity interviews and compelling stories from local veterans. WE NEED YOU to make this event a success!
