September 24th, 2013 by Elyssa Mann in News

The Callaway County United Way will be holding their annual, all-day radio-a-thon on Friday, Sept. 27 to kick off their fundraising year.

Beginning at 6 a.m., the event will broadcast live on KFAL from the Fulton Walmart parking lot. This year, the event will include a Red Cross blood drive, an auction, a barbecue, live interviews from partner United Way agencies and The Callaway Cruise, a car and motorcycle show. Wrestler Jack Gamble will make a personal appearance at 4:30 p.m.

And as always, the United Way is always looking for volunteers.

"Anyone willing to come down to help is always welcome," said Glenn Harris, board president of the Callaway County United Way. "There's always something to do."

The auction will open when the radio-a-thon begins, and will feature over 100 items. Gifts cards from local businesses and restaurants like Bek's and Sir Winston's, tickets to shows in Branson, Boy Scout popcorn, a wine tasting, an autographed baseball and more will be available.
