BBB Media Partner Alice 105.9 Fundraises for Children
February 16, 2012

Denver, CO – February 16, 2012 – Local radio personality, Slacker of Alice 105.9’s Slacker and Steve Show has a soft spot for his community and has recently been honored for his efforts in supporting child healthcare. In 2011, he was honored at the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ Celebration Gala as the Radiothon Supporter of the Year.

This year, on February 15-17, Slacker and Alice 105.9 will embark on their 11th year  hosting Alice’s 36 Hours for Kids – a radiothon event that has helped Children’s Hospital Colorado raise more than $11 million for pediatric healthcare. The BBB Serving Denver/Boulder makes an annual donation to the fundraiser.

“The children that I’ve met are so brave and have so much love to give,” said Slacker. “This event has made me become a glass-half-full kind of guy because even the kids that have passed on have left their mark and maybe lost the battle, but certainly not the fight. That makes me proud to be a part of raising money for Children’s Colorado.”

Slacker and Entercom, the company that owns Alice 105.9, have been tremendous supporters of the BBB Serving Denver/Boulder and its efforts to educate the community on local consumer issues. In 2010, Slacker co-hosted the BBB’s annual Torch Awards for Marketplace Trust. Every week Slacker conducts an interview with a BBB representative on the most current scam, industry tip or BBB-related news.

To donate to Alice’s 36 Hours for Kids, call 1-800-458-KIDS during the event, give online, or starting a personal fundraising page at www.YouMakeMiracles.com.
